Victoria is a goose widely known as the first goose to receive a prosthetic 3D printed beak.[1] Victoria was found on the São Paulo coast in late 2015, without most of her beak. She was transferred to the care of the Friend of the Sea in collaboration with Animal Avengers, when Cicero Moraes was still part of the team.[2] It isn't clear how Victoria lost her beak. A 3D printed prosthetic beak was attached by veterinarians of the University of São Paulo.[3][4]
