arrival of the Hong Kong turtles

Post by Marnix Hoekstra » Sun Nov 21, 2010 7:39 pm

Another shipment of turtles from the Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden arrived today at Schiphol airport. They were transported to Blijdorp zoo, where they were checked, photographed, and distributed to zoos and private keepers.
5 Cyclemys dentata were missing from the shipment. We don't know where they are.
There were eight Heosemys grandis, which brings the studbook population to 25.
1.4 are going to the Czech republic. 0.3 to Kurt Lippens in Belgium.
I'm not entirely sure that all females are really females, because they were quite small. Time will tell. :)
