The party animal

A little party never hurt anybody!

The story behind this turtle

This species is an imposing prehistoric relict from its own turtle family with no close relationship to other recent species from the cool mountain streams of Southeast Asia. They are skilled climbers and mollusk hunters, primarily nocturnal and threatened with extinction. The taxonomy of Chinese Big-headed turtles is poorly understood and still waiting to become resolved.
