A palm-sized turtle is common in many south Asia countries, including Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nepal. The turtle usually spends most of its life swimming in the rivers and lakes, but sometimes it can also be seen basking near the river banks in the sun.
Their diet primarily includes invertebrates such as snails, slugs, shrimp, crabs, worms, etc. Due to its unique look, the species is heavily traded, and its population continuously decreases. The species is currently designated as Vulnerable by the IUCN and needs our immediate attention.
