Baby Yellow Bellies

Last week has been baby-yellow-belly-week!

Despite being so small, the 3 baby terrapins are making our database larger and diverse. They were all found in the same pond a few days apart,during our usual terrapin trapping sessions and are approximately the same age of about 3-4 months. 

This species is critically endangered and are on the brink of extinction. To boost our conservation efforts in saving terrapins, we are also introducing the 'Adopt-A-Terrapin' scheme and the three new babies mentioned; Snookie, Piccola, and Sushi will also be one of the terrapins available for adoption as well as many many others.
