A tiny turtle at Zoo Knoxville can now live an easier life... in style!
The zoo has fitted one of its turtles, Patches, with a prosthetic mask.
Veterinarians at the UT College of Veterinary Medicine created a 3D printed resin plate to cover a hole in her nostril from infection.
Patches is a black-breasted leaf turtle. Veterinarians said they screwed the plate on and hope to make eating easier for the turtle.
