Happy #WorldTurtleDay! Many species of turtles around the world are threatened with extinction due to over exploitation for food and pets and increasing habitat destruction and need much more conservation attention. I found this remarkable baby Big-headed Turtle (Platysternon megacephalum) during a biodiversity survey in Hong Kong.
