China's Oldest Sea Turtle on Display in Aquarium

Updated Beijing Time

Source: www.gz.gov.cn



This year is the International Year for Sea Turtle Protection. From August 2, a sea turtle show, jointly organized by the Guangzhou Aquarium and the Huidong Sea Turtle Nature Reserve, China's only national-level base for sea turtle protection, has been underway. The show, which will be open until the end of this year, exhibits more than 80 sea turtle of five different species, allowing local people to feed them and obtain relevant knowledge.

The oldest sea turtle on display weighs more than 300 kilograms with a strong build. The aquarium head Li Chengtang explained that the turtle is about 400 years old as determined by a shell test by a taxonomic professor. Despite its old age, this sea turtle seems to have greater empathy with humans than other turtles, always swimming towards the feeder as he approaches. It takes greater efforts to feed this old turtle, as it requires a fixed amount of vitamin intake every day in addition to common food.
