Hang something really wild on your tree.

Giant Amazon River Turtle ornament People could learn a lot from turtles, like how to slow down and take it easy. This is especially important during the holidays, when many of us should slow down the work schedule and spend time with family and friends. This year's Zoological Society holiday ornament is Onassis, the giant Amazon River turtle. Onassis is the Milwaukee County Zoo's oldest animal.

As always, this Zoological Society ornament is handcrafted from pewter and designed by Wisconsin artist Andy Schumann, who has made our ornaments for the last 20 years (for some years he designed two ornaments).

The cost of each ornament is $14, which includes postage, mailing materials and 5.6 % WI sales tax. You also can order individual past ornaments ($14 each) or the whole collection of 22 for $264 and save $44 (limited-time offer). Proceeds assist the Zoological Society in providing support to the Milwaukee County Zoo’s animals. This purchase is not tax-deductible.
