A day after a wildlife trade conference in Bangkok, Thailand, authorities caught a man attempting to smuggle a bag full of tortoises shipped from Madagascar. Aside from that being pretty terrible to begin with, it turns out that among the stock of tortoises were 54 ploughshare tortoises, which may not seem like a lot considering their small size. However, it is estimated that the worldwide population of ploughshare tortoises is only around 400, meaning that the man was attempting to smuggle over 10% of the entire species through an airport in a suitcase.

I love the responses in my news no one actually cares about threads. That's why I keep posting them.
