One of the world's most endangered turtles dies, leaving 3 left



The female turtle, believed to be more than 90 years old, died on Saturday more than 24 hours after local staff, including international experts, tried to invent her artificial, local newspaper reported by Suzhou Daily.

The paper said no complications from attempted artificial insemination, but a research team made up of domestic and international experts conducts autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Suzhou Daily said the experts who collected the ovarian tissue samples and kept them "for future use."

The Wildlife Conservations Society (WCS) calls the Yangtze giant softshell turtle most critically endangered species of turtle in the world, killed by hunting and ruin.

The Suzhou Zoo contains a male giant Yangtze softshell turtle. The other two live in Vietnam, but their sex is unknown. Both live in the wild, according to a report published by The New Yorker in December.
