Poorly Parrot Gets New Beak Made

A wild parrot wasn't likelty to survive after being found without a beak. Renascer ACN, a Brazilian Animal Centre, rescued the poorly bird. A perfectly functioning beak was handmade from polymethylmethacrylate thanks to veterinarian Maria Ângela Panelli Marchio. Paulo Roberto martins Nunziata, founder of Renascer ACN, said "it is so resistant that it would need a chainsaw to be removed.” Parrots rely on their beaks to survive, using it for climbing & crushing objects.
