Sea Turtles?
 
I know this is a stupid question but...has anyone heard of baby sea turtles in home aquariums?

But I thought they are illegal for possession.:dunno: Nowadays, they are increasingly becoming endangered. They are bred in most areas where sanctuary is provided and the babies being released into the wild to ensure the continuity of their existence.

In no way should the turtles be legal for possession considering their present declining rate in number because of several factors including poaching and overfishing.:shake:

Yeah, there is no way you can have sea turtles in a home aquarium.

catch em in the EAC lol, joking, dont catch them, let them live there 150 year lives. They are becoming endangered though

I don't think you can bring your tank to prison. Don't ever even touch them on the beach. If you touch them it greatly reduces their survival rates. Just leave them alone so future generations of kids might have a chance to see one alive.

Even if they weren't endangered & illegal to collect they get huge.

this tank has a sea turtle in it.


Edit by CRM:


The tank is 14,000 gallons, not your typical home aquarium.
