An amazing & also shocking information is just waiting for you. You must be astonished when you hear the truth about the components used to make some sort of keychains in China. In China some sort of keychains are made with live animals. These special keychains are made for tourists.

Which animals are used ?

Generally small fishes or turtles are placed in a small sealed plastic keychain container.

How long these animals live ?

The sellers claim that they keep some nutritious supplements inside the plastic containers. This nutritious supplements keep the animals alive for several weeks or months. This is 100% false. Only food makes no animal live for a long. Without fresh oxygen, water, air no animals can survive for a long. Actually, no access to air and limited space kills these animals quite quickly.

Unfortunately, buying or selling these poor creatures as keychains is not banned in China. These activities are legal. I think it should be banned.

I know attitudes are different across cultures, but this is just wrong. We need to teach respect for animals and reduce cruelty. Other living creatures do not exist just to be exploited by humans.

you're right ........ I love also animals :)

Many Chinese are oppose this.
But culturally as a whole, in my experience meeting people here, too many lack empathy for animals or even other people.

The society is not yet at a level where they can care for creatures other themselves. Western societies have animal rights because we have decent human rights. We care about them and have the ability to make societal changes, even though its long process often. Chinese people must follow the narrative even if they disagree.
