  • This species is known to hybridize with the Chinese pond turtle, the Japanese pond turtle, and the Chinese stripe-necked turtle (ref: Wiki)
  • Can bring the plastron to the edges of the carapace, so becoming a closed box (ref: Wiki)
  • Omnovorous (ref: Wiki)


  • Males are assumed to differ from females by {p_Am} and E_Hp only
  • In view of low somatic maintenance, pseudodata k_J = 0.002 1/d is replaced by pseudodata k = 0.3
