Worlds Largest Freshwater Turtles Nearly Extinct

The Yangtze Giant Softshell Turtle is down to only four individuals in the world, two of which are a breeding pair in Suzhou Zoo in China. Their last few clutches of eggs have resulted in no hatchlings at all. Hopefully they can have some babies and keep the species going for future generations of humans to marvel at.

Peace and Health
