Asia Dive News : Chinese vendors sell live marine animals as key chains

Vendors in China are selling “keychains” that are actually small, plastic baggies with live turtles or fish sealed inside along with a “nutrient rich” solution meant to keep the critters alive for an extended period of time. In reality, they die rather quickly due to lack of oxygen.

Believe it or not, these keychains, which vendors hawk near the entrances of subways, are legal in China, which is known for its lax animal-protection laws.
