There are some new and very rare additions to the Bronx Zoo.

Five Chinese yellow-headed box turtles — considered to be one of the 25 most endangered turtles in the world – were hatched at the zoo’s Reptile House.

There are fewer than 150 Chinese yellow-headed box turtles left in the wild, which is why the zoo’s work is so important.
