Lissemys ceylonensis — Sri Lanka Softshell Turtle
Also known as:
Sri Lankan Flap-shelled Turtle, Sri Lankan Flapshell Turtle
We came across this turtle as we were driving at night from Yala National Park back to our tented camp. The turtle was crossing a reasonably busy road until we stopped and jumped out to save it, and also grab a photo or two.
