Do you like turtles?

“I like turtles.”

As do a lot of people evidently, we see it in the hundreds of memes regarding turtles & tortoises running about the social networks. We wanted to look into the chelonian ‘culture’ as it were. With the help of  the Turtle & Tortoise Preservation Group  & our incredible guest panel of Russ Gurley, James Badman, Michael Thathuvaswamy, Daniel Parker of Sunshine Serpents & others we examine the legislation regarding size, conservation, & even sustainable harvest of species for food.

No Chelonian broadcast would be complete without turtle & tortoise captive care.  So grab a cup of your favourite beverage and join  as we discuss the preservation of all Chelonians & specifically the Spider tortoises (Pyxis arachnoides) and Flat-tailed tortoises (Pyxis planicauda) to be listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
