    Platysternon head shots

    A 6 yr old female. Believe it or not, she’s actually pretty tame. From the moment they hatch the protective head covering begins to form. The older they get the more pronounced the covering becomes.

They haven't shown any interest yet in fruit or veggies, but that will come in time as they age. They have been quite entertaining to work with thus far. Their personalities are...

    White layer on eyes

    I believe you may be confusing it with Cuora mouhitii (3 Keeled Box turtle / Jagged Shell turtle). This is 1,000% a Mauremys (Chinemys) reevesii.
