The keeled box turtle, also known as keel-backed terrapin, jagged-shelled turtle, and Mouhot’s turtle, is endemic to Asia. It is herbivorous and is a terrestrial species. The carapace of the keeled box turtle has three large, raised ridges and is serrated on the back end. The population is steeply declining due to these threats: farming, ranching, hunting and trapping, wood harvesting, mining, quarrying, dams, and water management.
