    Red-eared sliders are at the bottom of the list.
    Didn't see 1 Tortoise on the list!

    That was interesting and kinda scary.

    Feral animals really do create havoc to an ecosystem.

    They sure do. Especially Red-eared sliders. They are a very aggressive species that can outcompete with our native freshwater turtles for food and breeding.
