Meet our new pig-nosed turtle

Meet our new pig-nosed turtle, seen here with our aquarium manager Andrea Swatman.

Pig-nosed turtles have a long fleshy snout which acts like a snorkel when they are swimming.

Having just arrived, this new species can be seen inside our Elephants of the Asian Forest exhibit.
