The Denver Zoo has two Black-Breasted Leaf Turtles in the exit room of Tropical Discovery. They share a habitat with the Giant Hump-Headed Lizards. For over a year there were two juveniles in the nursery near the Komodo Dragons. There was also a Black-Breasted Leaf Turtle in the Education Center in 2013.
