The orderly one

I love clean surroundings and a minimalistic style

The story behind this turtle

This peaceful turtle originates from central Africa and is characterized with labial organs that closely resemble a vacuum cleaner. After we first found our precious turtle "Aubrey" she needed to undergo surgery due to a severe infection. However, thereafter she delighted our team with hatchlings and we successfully raised the world’s first offspring in captivity. Her babies are still very colourful and have been enthusiastically chasing after fish, insects and crabs from day one.
