Chinese pond turtle (クサガメ)

Chinese pond turtle [Reeves’ turtle] (Mauremys reevesii, クサガメ) walking up the the canal in Tsuji, Ritto City. Three hand-size turtles were together, probably headed for a small pond about 300 meters upstream from where I found them. This small turtle is an endangered species on the IUCN Red List (http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/full/170502/0)
