Melbourne Pet and Animal Expo

The Turtles Australia Inc. stand at the Melbourne Pet and Animal Expo, held over the weekend, proved to be quite popular with a steady crowd checking out the display on both days.  The Murray River Turtle hatchlings were a real draw card.  Being able to compare day old hatchlings with mature 3kg adults was, to some people, a real eye opener resulting in quite a few members of the public now making plans to purchase larger tanks for their “Penny Turtles”.

We gave four presentations on freshwater turtles which seemed to go over well, despite us having to compete with the dogs demonstrating “fly-ball” which resulted in some extremely loud barking.

We were also interviewed for a new TV program, featuring veterinary surgeon Dr Kevin Foster, which is in production at the moment.  Keep an eye on our website for details of when it is to be aired.

Our thanks go to Tuff Turf ‘N’ Co who so kindly donated the synthetic grass that we used both in and around the “wet and dry tubs”.  The tiles really added to the display and enabled the kids to comfortably get up close and personal with the turtles.

Most importantly though I’d like to thank Turtles Australia members Dylan, Natalie, Lynette and Mark for their invaluable help over the weekend – without their hard work and enthusiasm the exhibit would never have happened.
