Malayan Snail-eating Turtle

Malayemys macrocephala
(Gray, 1859)
Lat Krabang, Thailand. February 17, 2016.

The lake behind our hotel at Lat Krabang was an awesome place for turtle-watching. The small but steady stream of joggers, walkers and bicyclists that circled the lake made the turtles much less wary of humans trying to take their picture. I even caught several of these snail eaters by hand.
