The Amazonian Chelonious Project removed the Amazonian turtle -- the largest species of fresh water chelonious in South America - from the endangered species list, in spite of the complete lack of funding and the Brazilian environmental policies. Nurseries like that are used as the babies' temporary home, where they will only leave in 5 to 30 days, when their shells are hardened and their fish smell -- strong attraction of predators -- has
vanished.

State: Roraima.
