In the wrybill, a small New Zealand bird, the bill, which is one and a quarter inches long, is bent to the right in the middle, the end being offset at an angle of 12 degrees to the base. This is claimed to be an adaptation to its existence on the shingle river-beds of Canterbury, where it nests, the bent bill supposedly enabling it to get its food the more readily from under stones. It skims larvae from the sides and bottom of stones.

Now where can we possibly use this "abnormality" and deploy it as a "functionality"?
To improve the life of the consumer if nothing else! (Everything else will anyways be a by product of the consumer-life-improvement part.)
For more on this amazing bird, check this out.
