A video on the prosthetic beak for the baby penguin

Baby Penguin New Beak
A procedure to restore a baby penguin's beak is complete.
The five-month-old penguin was found on a beach outside Rio de Janeiro with a shattered bill that was damaged by a boat propeller.
The penguin was in danger of dying without a beak, and the prosthetic replacement allows him to eat again on his own. He's expected to make full recovery in three weeks and will be sent to a breeding center in California for rehabilitation.
