Through Teamwork and Trial and Error, Pete the Parrot Gets a 3D Printed Prosthetic Leg

Through Teamwork and Trial and Error, Pete the Parrot Gets a 3D Printed Prosthetic Leg

We’ve seen many amazing stories of 3D printing technology helping injured birds, from 3D printed beaks and feet to orthotic boots, leg braces, and prosthetic legs. A 34-year-old Mealy Amazon parrot named Pete was the recipient of his own 3D printed prosthetic after he survived an unfortunate injury. Pete’s story is remarkable, and not just because 3D printing swooped in […]
