Hello from Vietnam! This turtle was rescued from some people trying to sell it to a restaurant. Any info would be greatly appreciated. He's a little rough looking, not sure if he's got shell rot, or just damage. Please excuse the short intro. I've wrote this 3 times trying to figure out how to post this. Thank you fir your time! We live in south Vietnam if that helps. Here's a few pictures:
