Amongst the 35 released individuals, the two King Cobras that weighed roughly 23.7 kg both were handed over voluntarily to Cu Chi Wildlife Rescue Station (WRS) by Van Duc Pagoda three months ago. The nine Elongated Tortoises that were born at Cu Chi WRS were also released back to the wild. The other species were confiscated from the illegal wildlife trade or illegal captivity. All of these individuals are endangered species and protected under Vietnamese Law.
