We know that some birds are getting artificial limbs, even beaks. There’s a few Eagles that got beaks. recently.there’s a Cockatoo that got both legs/feet and is now able to move about. In Brazil, A pink flamingo has gotten a new leg to stand on – an artificial one. Zookeepers at a zoo in Southeastern Brazil said they think it’s the first time a flamingo has used a prosthetic leg. The 6-year old Chilean flamingo at the Sorocaba zoo fractured his left leg a while ago. “To prevent an infection from setting in and spreading to the rest of his body, which would have killed him, we decided to amputate the leg and give him the prosthesis,” said the zoo’s veterinarian, Andre Costa, who performed the surgery on the bird. Costa said it’s unknown how bird’s leg was injured but that one of the clumsy pelicans that share the enclosure crashed into him or he was attacked by one of the crowned cranes.
