The Shedd Aquarium is using 3D printing and molding techniques to make a new foot for Hiss Majesty, the 16-year-old caiman lizard who lost his back right foot to cancer last year.

A team of designers, animal care specialists and veterinarians is collaborating to make prototype feet that Hiss, a semi-aquatic lizard, could wear.
