W88 # 2.12 This is a very nice display of 5 species of turtles. They are displayed nicely in glass domes with black wooden bases and then showcased on a vintage wooden pedestal. These are not attached to the pedestal but could easily be glued down. All species are not protected and are from a turtle farm. They are the little guys that did not make it.
The dimensions of this piece are approx. 11 x 7 1/2 x 7 overall. The Taller turtle domes are approximately 3 1/2 x 2" and the shorter domes are approximately 2 1/2 x 2". This would be a great addition to any collection or a wonderful teaching tool as well.
