Amazing animal prosthetics and equally amazing animals. Premieres Wednesday, April 9, on PBS.
The animals of the world may increasingly need our help with big issues like preserving habitat or species conservation. But sometimes individual animals need our help as well. Left disabled without fins, flippers, beaks, or tails because of disease, accidents, or even human cruelty, these unfortunate creatures need what amounts to a miracle if they are to survive. Luckily for them, sometimes miracles do happen. Amazing prosthetics made possible by the latest engineering and technology are able to provide just what they need, and scientists are finding that innovations created in the process are benefiting both animals and humans. We will meet these inspiring animals and the remarkable individuals whose work has helped them live their lives again. (Video streaming restricted to U.S. and Territories.)
My Bionic Pet premieres Wednesday, April 9, 2014, at 8/7c on PBS.
