5 Most strange and beautiful turtles
5- big-headed turtle
The big-headed turtle (Platysternon megacephalum) is a species of turtle in the family Platysternidae from the Southeast Asia and southern China.For Madagascar see Madagascan big-headed turtle.
Previously considered a distinct family placed on occasion in “Kinosternoidea”, it was later moved to the Emydidae. With the Geoemydidae being split off from these, it seems wisest to reinstate, at least for the time being, the Platysternidae. This, as well as the subfamily and the genus Platysternon, are monotypic.
