Turtle gets titanium jaw implant

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- It's not exactly Iron Man, but it does have a titanium bite.

This rescued sea turtle from Turkey lost two-thirds of its jaw when it was hit by a boat propeller. Volunteers contacted BTech Innovations and the company printed 3D, custom-made, titanium implants.

This is the world's first 3D printed jaw implant for a sea turtle.

Now, not even rapper Lil' Wayne can compete with this guy's grill.

After the sea turtle gets used to it, volunteers hope to release it back into the sea.
