South Asian River Turtles have never bred successfully in Canadian captivity. In Toronto, the keepers know they’re laying eggs, but these eggs are supposed to be buried in the sand, not dropped in the water of their exhibit.

In order to do that, though, they’ll have to contend with the turtles’ testy roommate – a crocodile.
