Back in 2005, a bald eagle (later named "Beauty") was found near-death and scavenging for food in an Alaskan landfill; her beak had been shot off, leaving her virtually unable to eat, drink, and clean herself. But a team of biologists who run a bird rescue and recovery center in Idaho think they have at last developed a prosthetic beak that will once again allow Beauty to eat on her own, without the aid of a human helper. While her new beak still won't allow her to re-enter life in the wild, the team is confident that the appendage will allow the 5-year old to reach the grand old age of 70, at least. [Wired]
