Very cool.

Is the plan with the endangered turtle to try to breed and reintroduce?

Honestly, it's illegal to own/buy/sell these species because of their status. I'm just hoping that I can secure a wildlife permit for the said project unfortunately there is no amnesty yet. I can only introduce them here and other turtle forums, but for the public a big no.

Thank you guys for appreciating!

Cheers! Mabuhay dumbork14!

Nice. Where did you get your turtles? I'm from Manila also and I have been struggling to find turtles other than red-eared sliders. :(

I'm also surprised by that Alligator Snapping turtle, considering they're one of the largest lake turtles over the world. I recently watched a Brave Wilderness video on youtube about the turtle here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WT2eLretCWE. :wink:
