Video: What Weighs 200 Pounds and is Worth This Kind of Effort?

The giant softshell turtle is one of the most endangered species on earth. Watching these guys save one will make your day.

Cheers to all the folks in the world that take the time and effort to care for the creatures that can’t always care for themselves. Watch this before handling any turtle to make sure that you’re holding it correctly.

Let’s hope that the turtle is still going strong!
