Malayan Box turtle

Cuora amboinensis

Description:

This was a very surprising spotting. I had been out hiking in the forest all day and came back to the hostel around 5pm and saw this turtle walking across the hot, empty parking lot.

Habitat:

tropical rainforest

Notes:

I don't often spot turtles and tortoises when I'm hiking, so I was really surprised to see this out in the parking lot. After I took the pictures, a park ranger and I moved it to a small river behind the campsite.
