Two Rare Egyptian Tortoises Hatch and Make Debut at Woodland Park Zoo
Two Egyptian tortoises recently made their debut at Woodland Park Zoo. Hatched at the end of December, the quarter-sized tortoises can now be seen in the Day Exhibit. The species is extinct in its native Egypt and faces global extinction unless more action is taken to protect the species.
More than 40 Egyptian tortoises have hatched at the zoo since the first hatching in 2004. Check out the zoo's video featuring the new tortoises:
