This exhibition particularly targets the turtles of metropolitan France, namely 3 species mainly, the Hermann’s Tortoise, the european pond turtle and the panish pond turtle. The exhibition is divided into 3 parts, the first one is intended to make known the life of these species, mating, hatching, feeding etc. The second one concerns introduced species such as Pond sliders, the common snapping turtles and alligator snapping turtles found in nature, and finally, the last part is devoted to the means used by the Museum to save the european pond turtle. The photos are taken on Dibond and each image is linked with an explanatory cartel.
