Rare…and GAWRGEOUS!!!!!

The Bronx Zoo has welcomed Five Chinese yellow-headed box turtles and they are starting to get their sea legs.

This box turtle is considered to be one of the top 25 most endangered turtles in the world. They once swam throughout the rivers of China but their numbers have dwindled due to human consumption, use in traditional medicine, pollution, habitat loss, and the pet trade.

So we know the Bronx Zoo is extra happy about their new babies!

Aren't they just so PRESCHUZZ?????

Check out the zoo's new cuties (above) PRONTO!
