To my knowledge, Rafetus euphraticus is the only softshell found in Iran. The plastron should have only two callosities (thick skin covering bones). They may grow to an impressive size and can be vicious like most softshells.

::Snakepeter-- Is it a "flapshell" softshell species? In other words, does it have protective flaps that cover the rear legs and the tail? --Maxx

:It`s hard to say for me, have to check it. I have few pictures, which I could post, but therefore I`m new to this forum, I don`t know the way how to do it. Maybe I could send them to you dirrectly? Peter
