You can buy keychain souvenirs with live fish and turtles

April 12, 2011 · 9 comments

It’s cruel but is a fact. In China, you can buy a small fish or turtle placed in a small sealed keychain container.

The sellers claim they place nutritious supplements inside the plastic containers which keep the animals alive for as long as several months. This is of course, not true. No access to air and limited space kills these animals quite quickly.

Unfortunately, such trading activity is not banned in China and you can legally buy these poor creatures.
