Turtle Conservancy

Our
work protecting turtles extends into captivity. For example, the
Burmese Star tortoise is under such poaching threats for the pet trade,
they can only be kept in zoo and private collections.

The Turtle
Conservancy has the largest, most successful conservation breeding
program for this Critically Endangered species anywhere outside of its
native range!

‘I’m just gonna stay down here till the humans stop acting crazypants’ – Smart Sea turtle is smart

I know, right? I believe Basil is an African Side-neck turtle (aka west african mud turtle?) 

I love them because they always look like they are smiling (or have a little mustache haha) Gorgeous shells!
