Rare Turtle Born At Tennessee Aquarium!

| Filed under: Cuteness!Sea CreaturesZooTurtle

Cute rare turtle born at Tennessee Aquarium is super adorbz!

This is wonderful news! A rare Keeled Box Turtle was recently born for the second time in Tennessee Aquarium history!

The Keeled Box Turtle has been over-collected in the wild, for food and pet trade and so their numbers aren't great.

There are less than 20 Keeled Box Turtles spread across the U.S.'s zoos, so this little baby is extra special!

Ahhh! He's so stanky cute too!

Look at how tiny he is! When he was born he only weighed 0.41oz, as much as 12 paper clips!

He's just under two inches… we can hardly stand it!! Too adorbz!

The tiny turtle hatchling was the only one to hatch out of seven eggs that were laid back in July.

The Tennessee Aquarium has one of the biggest turtle collections on display to the public, having over 500 individual animals across 75 different species.

That's so ahmayzing! So glad there are great places like this that can keep cutie creatures from going extinct!
