Thanks and a link...

Thanks for the article. I appreciate having been informed of the rescue and was inspired to read up a bit about pig-nosed turtles. As flippered freshwater turtles and the only living member of the genus Carettochelys they are rather unique. I was even inspired to add a little to their Wikipedia page,

Cool. You know, you can make links from here to Wikipedia using wiki markup — they are sister projects, after all. Like this: [[w:Pig-nosed turtle]], which produces: w:Pig-nosed turtle. :-)

Thanks for the formatting tip. I was still largely Wiki naive at the time. Have been catching up quite abit over the last few weeks though.

p.s. I went ahead and referenced the WN article in the WP one. #Status and conservation
