    I highly doubt they would keep a pig nosed turtle in what is (presumably) a saltwater tank, considering this is a freshwater species.

    All species mentioned can be found in fresh water rivers.

    While I knew this, I assumed this exhibit would be brackish water, as all species listed except for the pig nosed turtle are commonly found in estuaries.

    After googling the exhibit I see that it is in fact a large pond, not a large tank as I imagined it. That would make sense why it’s freshwater as that would be a lot easier to maintain than a saltwater pond, as evaporation has a much more drastic effect on saltwater than freshwater.

    My fault for assuming that the exhibit contained brackish water.
