Deep in the Mojave Desert, a baby tortoise cracks through the shell of its egg.

Beyond the nearest dune, a raven cracks open another tortoise shell — but instead of finding juicy meat, there’s only the foul taste of bait.

This is a scenario envisioned by a team of biologists and technicians at Hardshell Labs, a U.S. company determined to save the sand tortoise from predatory birds.

Using 3D printing, they’ve developed copies of these reptiles so realistic that even the ravens, with their sharp eyes and sharper beaks, are fooled.
