Turkish 3D Printing Specialists Save Life

Posted on

While we’ve reported a number of unusual but heartwarming stories about pets receiving 3D printed leg implants to make their lives easier already, a new case from Turkey definitely takes the cake. There, a Loggerhead Sea Turtle was recently rescued from the Mediterranean and brought to the Sea Turtle Research, Rescue and Rehabilitation Center at Pamukkale University (PAU). Unable to eat and thus to survive, its rescuers gave the turtle a 3D printed jaw implant to give it a second chance.
