3. Rare Turtles Known for Their Permanent Smile Saved from Extinction.

Burmese Roofed Turtles (AKA the smiling turtle) have been saved from extinction! Not too long ago, these turtles were in the line of extinction due to being over-hunted, medically researched, pet trade, reckless egg harvesting, and destruction of habitat. Many people doubted that these turtles were still around, and they thought that they had become extinct. In 2001, when Dr. Kuchling happened to visit a pond in a Buddhist temple, where the turtles once habituated. To his surprise, he saw three baby turtles smiling at him from the pond. Thanks to his discovery, the WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) managed to save over 1,000 of these turtles. Now these turtles really do have a reason to smile.
