PREVIOUS TURTLE NEXT TURTLE Thailand

Red-eared Terrapins became widespread in various areas of the world due to their popularity in the pet trade.

 

With hatchlings growing rapidly, they are often released into the wild, where they quickly spread through much of the region and have now become by far the most conspicuous turtle in Southeast Asia. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
