Baby kakapo gets brain surgery

Postby Pajarita » Thu May 09, 2019 9:12 am

One of the babies hatched this season was born with a hole in its head - the fontanel never closed and the actual brain was right under a thin layer of tissue so he received life-saving surgery to close it. This surgery had never been tried in birds before!
