    The new Annam leaf turtle exhibit at the London Zoo apparently shows very graphically the threats facing this species and other Asian turtles (i.e., it looks like a big kitchen).

    Has anybody here seen this exhibit? If so, did this exhibit successfully deliver its intended conservation message in your opinion?
