Living Keychains Sold in China Feature Live Sea Creatures

Certain turtles and fish are considered good luck to Chinese people. Street vendors in China have been developing Living Keychains so people can start carrying around their good-luck charms.

These unique Living Keychains house Brazilian turtles or kingfish swimming in colored water. Although the packets contain nutrients for the fish, there is still a lack of oxygen, and animal rights enthusiasts are furious over this fact.

Laws in China only protect wild animals, which leaves these poor sea creatures out of the scope. The 7-cm miniature aquarium is not a fun place for these little guys to be. Sales of Living Keychains have been booming across China; however, there's a bunch of good people out there who are just buying them to let these fish and turtles be free.
