Injured Turtle Gets a New 3D-Printed Jaw

This sea turtle became injured and he was unable to use his jaw. When rescuers saw how injured he really was, they decided to create him a brand new jaw by using a 3D printer and the results are truly outstanding. It is incredible to think how long these turtles can live for, but without his new jaw, this turtle might not be alive today. This incredible video shows the turtle with his new jaw and he certainly looks pleased with the results.

Now he can eat properly and he can also go back to enjoying his day to day life. Who knows what technology will be able to do next and who knows what would have happened to this turtle if there weren’t good people out there who were willing to help. What a truly inspirational story and this is certainly one that you need to watch.
