    Heres a rare treat. Platysternons hatching (the only pictures around I think?). From several years back. Shared photo from Sue Teidemann. I had contacted her a while back for breeding advice, etc. Thought Gerard and Anthony would enjoy these too :)

    My latest male Platysternon

    Introducing "Popeye". Was hoping he'd be a female, but it was difficult to tell by the sellers pictures. He's huge with a 7 inch carapace length and a bit over weight and carapace wear. Still happy with him, very unique.

    Hi, I'm new to the boards here. The main species I work with are Platysternon Megacephalum. They are my favorite turtles. Anyone else here currently have any Platys? Thanks, Mark
