Illegal Turtle Sales Resume in Columbia Heights

This was a very common problem last year. I don’t blame the buyers but the sellers. At this stage they just look like cute little turtles. However, I was sad to see sales had resumed outside DC USA on 14th St, NW in Columbia Heights because, while I don’t have statistical proof, I fear once the “mini turtles” grow into larger turtles they will end up getting abandoned.

What do you guys think – is the sale of these baby turtles nothing to worry about or do you think they will end up being abandoned when they grow to their adult size?
