    I have 2 arriving as soon as the weather is safe to ship. For those of you that understand how so incredibly fortunate and also humbled I am to be able to work with this species, stay tuned to this thread.

    Also, just as equally cool, I have 2 Platysternon megacephalum coming with them.

    All 4 of these incredible animals were CB in '18.

    Unscientific names makes it easier to know what your talking about. Now I have to look them up, ugh. Lol
    Congrats, I can tell the excitement in your post. That's cool. Looking forward to pics.

    Oh wow, I love those. Their shell is like beautiful looking wood.
    They are critically endangered, how are they able to be sold?
    Really exciting.

    You seem to have quite the diverse collection of turtles and tortoises. I wish I could come visit you.

    The enclosures are ready and the countdown is on. The Platysternon arrived first, and these guys are coming right behind them. Breathe, Mike. Breathe....
