NATURE | The Loneliest Animals | Last Living Pair | PBS

Duration: 07:08

In China, the last female rafetus turtle is about to be introduced to her new home at the Suzhou Zoo. She will take up residence in a divided breeding pond where - on the other side of a metal gate - the last male rafetus turtle is waiting to meet her. The stakes are incredibly high: this is literally the last chance the scientists have to save this species.
