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:

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.

this tank has a sea turtle in it.


Edit by CRM:


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



All creatures are from South Carolina shore.
Queen angels
Blue angels
French angels
Loggerhead turtle
Nurse shark
Green moray
Spotted moray
Spanish wrasses
Cuban wrasses
basses
and much more!


This tank is located in the South Carolina Aquarium.

I apologize for not being able to credit the photographer, unknown.

TR were did that pic come from. It looks just like the SC aquaruim. They only keep them when they are injuried and can not be returned to the wild.
