Up in the mountains, this nocturnal turtle’s brown flat body closely resembles the rocks in hillstreams, making it practically invisible to predators, but not humans. Due to their unique appearance—a huge head and a tail as long as their body—Big-headed Turtles (Platysternon megacephalum) have been heavily hunted for the pet trade in many areas over the past three decades, and overall population trends are declining.
