Now at just 24 hours old, these are potentially the most important freshwater turtles in Australia right now from a conservation point of view. 8 little 10c coin sized critically endangered captive bred Manning River turtles - Wollumbinia purvisi

*WARNING* - Viewer discretion is advised due to imminent "aaawwwww' factor.


With the potential to outlive myself by decades, these guys give me that sense of achievement, purpose and fulfillment that nothing else ever has or will.

like all babies they have no idea but are so cute. I don't breed to make money but I love watching them grow and learn. And then I get to see the smiles on little kids faces when they meet their new friend. To me this is the best thing.
