Black Marsh Turtles are medium-sized, freshwater turtles with a black carapace, and that can grow up to 20 centimeters.

 

They prefer soft-bottomed, heavily vegetated, shallow bodies of slow-moving or stagnant waters in low elevations, where they spend most of the time at the bottom of the water or buried in the mud.
