The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum – A Place Dedicated Towards Rare Beauties

Winning a lottery ticket can only bring you great riches, but setting your eyes on a significant amount of rare turtles can double your fortunes. You could be blessed with long life too! The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum is located inside the Chinese Gardens. This landmark in Singapore is dedicated to traditional Northern Chinese landscaping. Amidst the impeccably designed lawns, one would find 50 different species of turtles and tortoises. It is simply astounding as these grand old beings are so diverse. Lethargically floating or walking around, you will find dainty, husky and sometimes even scary looking turtles and tortoises that are bound to impress. If you plan to explore the town and more importantly the museum, you would also be on the lookout for well placed Singapore serviced apartments. One such apartment complex is Somerset Bencoolen Singapore. It’s time to discover the unique beauty of each of these creatures!

The Alligator Turtle commands your presence while the Indian Star Tortoise grunts and walks away. Among the other turtles and tortoises hosted at the museum are Elongata Tortoise, Mata Mata, Thailand’s Golden Temple Tortoise, Sulcata Tortoise and Pancake Tortoise just to name a few. If you are lucky enough you will also witness them in the fiery act of mating! You could consider yourself doubly lucky when you witness one or more laying eggs, so keep your eyes peeled when at the museum.

If you want to watch as they munch away, you need not worry as vegetables such as carrots can be purchased at the premises. However, if you want to get a bit more comfortable with the turtles and tortoises be a bit cautious because your fingers might seem just as delicious as fresh vegetables!

You would definitely consider yourself blessed when in the company of turtles and tortoises such as these. A visit to the museum must be given a special place in your itinerary.
