:Yeah i called and some guy said it was funerea (rhinoclemmys) i didn't think he was right so i thought i'd post. Its way too concave to be funerea.... i know very little about chinemys nigricans, but don't they have a light colored face/nape? the plastron of that species should be pretty revealing too right?....can you tell me more?
I agree, it looks like C. Nigricans (kwangtung river turtles). I have two young ones, and that looks just like one to me. As said earlier, a plastral shot would reveal all.
Not all kwangs have markings on their heads, as someone mentioned. One of mine has a solid black head, while the other has some light markings reminiscent of the markings of a Reeves.
