PREVIOUS TURTLE NEXT TURTLE Vietnam

Red-eared terrapins grow rapidly and once they have become too big to be kept as a pet, they are often released into the wild, city parks or -like this one, which is basking on the leaf of a water lily- in a Buddhist temple pond. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
