Saving Animal Lives With Artificial Flippers, Legs, and BeaksBook - 2021
What happens to a goose with no beak? Is it possible for a heavy animal like an elephant or a pig to walk on only three legs? Can a turtle with one flipper survive in the ocean? Readers are introduced to the stories of five different animals from around the globe that are thriving thanks to prosthetic body parts. There's Lola, a Kemp's ridley sea turtle, Mosha, an Asian elephant, Cassidy, a German shepherd, Vitoria, a greylag goose, and Pirate, a Berkshire-Tamworth pig. Each of these animals was at risk of dying due to their circumstances, but humans intervened, and using a variety of techniques and technologies, they were able to create prosthetics that enabled these animals to survive. Discover the amazing true stories of animals that have survived thanks to their prosthetic body parts.
