Description

”Patches”, a Black-breasted leaf turtle at Zoo Knoxville, is now sporting a custom prosthetic mask created for her by veterinarians at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine (UTCVM). The team placed a 3D printed resin plate and screw on the endangered turtle, to cover a hole in her nostril from infection and to make eating easier for the tiny turtle.
