Pet Market Turtle Treatment


The animals, intended to be pets, soaking in the tub below were being treated for "parasites" according to the shop owner.   The solution appears to be potassium permanganate and the animals soaking included a small red eared slider and a larger Asian aquatic turtle (likely an Orlitia or Hieremys  though it didn't raise it's head from it's medicinal spa)
