Elephant with steel fang

Elephant Spike, in Canadian zoo "Calgary" had a pretty serious accident- he broke a left fang. Residual half of a fang is fissured almost till jaw. That is menaced to infect tooth's nerve and give Spike awfully aches, maybe even brought him to death. For that reason, zoo's administration choose to build him an unusual denture. In collaboration with Technology Institute in Alberta, two dentures are made of steel. These dentures are 14 kg weighty and costs about 8500 us dollars. although, the second fang was healthy, administration of zoo choose to made both dentures-enable Spike hold the balance. During three-hours operation, patient Spike was a totally "care-free" and sleeping, even he was snoring!
