Chinese big-headed turtles, an endangered species native to Southeast Asia, are so named because their thick sculls cannot withdraw into their shells.
The turtle babies hatched last month, joining 10 other members of their species at the zoo.
“With so many of the world’s freshwater turtles and tortoises facing extinction, these hatchlings represent significant progress for the conservation of the species," zoo director Denise McClean said in a statement. "The science could help expand breeding programs to other facilities and can be useful to conservation work in the field.”
