For ages: 6-8
Karl is an Abyssinian ground hornbill with a special challenge. His lower bill
had broken off and made eating difficult. Karl did a great job of adapting and
finding new ways to eat, but he wasn't getting all the food he needed. His
zookeepers at the National Zoo and friends at the Smithsonian Institute wanted
to help. Could an old bird skeleton and a 3-D printer give Karl a new beak?
Karl's new adventure was about to begin!
