    Astonishing! Lets hope it works for the poor turtle and it can be released back into the wild.

    I have a soft spot for turtles. Beautiful creatures. Sadly, we are losing so many due to 'fishing' and boat accidents.

    It's amazing how technology is helping with prosthetics nowadays -and helping the animals too!
    Brilliant. I hope his body doesn't reject the new beak, and he can be released back to the wild soon....
