Lots of turtles in cramped conditions, we would not recommend this, if one has any feeling for the animals.

Definately, NOT, it is a very small building with narrow walkways with glass tanks on either side. Would not recommend this place unless you wish to be distressed at the poor state these turtles have to live in, very cruel
