70 rare Assam temple turtle hatchlings released in ‘Mini Kaziranga’

  • About 70 hatchlings of the rare Black Softshell and  Indian Softshell turtles bred in the ponds of two  temples in Assam were released in the Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, about 50 km east of Guwahati.
  • The sanctuary is often called ‘Mini Kaziranga’ because  of similar landscape and a sizeable population of the  one-horned rhino.
