      Turtle meat can be purchased from exoticmeats.com. I've never been disappointed.

      The only place I have seen turtles sold has been in chinatown, San Francisco, NYC, Toronto, Vancouver. I'm sure any city with a good sized chinatown has live turtles.

      This soup sounds great. I don't want to sound dumb, but I've never seen turtle meat sold in a grocery store, at least not where I live. Where would you buy it, or do you have to catch them? My uncle used to catch snappers and have a big turtle-fry (it was really more like stew)and it was really good.
