Turtle-y Amazing!

How cool are our Annam leaf turtles?!

But... did you also know that they are classed as critically endangered? Until recently, not a single turtle had been seen or documented in the wild for over 60 years. They are native to a small area of central Vietnam where they are illegally hunted and traded for food and traditional medicine!

We have 5 turtles here at the centre, which joined us from Paignton Zoo earlier this year! They love hiding under foliage - see if you can spot them next time you visit!
