FUN FACTS
Despite the name, these turtles do not have four eyes. Instead, both males and females have eye spots or ocelli on the tops of their heads. These markings are different for males and females. This species is part of the Tennessee Aquarium’s Asian Turtle Breeding Program and has successfully reproduced here.
CONSERVATION
IUCN: Endangered. Raised conservation awareness and more effective law enforcement is required if the four-eyed turtle, and other freshwater turtles, are to survive.
