Population Trend. Although the species could potentially still inhabit some modified habitats (e.g. Captive-bred turtles produced in Hong Kong, Europe and North America have been repatriated to Viet Nam, boosting the captive assurance population in the country in terms of numbers and genetic lineages. Mauremys annamensis is protected by national legislation in Viet Nam. At one location where M. annamensis formerly occurred, suitable habitat no longer appears to exist (Dawson et al. Genetic analyses have demonstrated the hybrid origin of such specimens, which previously received the name ‘Ocadia glyphistoma’ (Spinks et al. Functionally extinct in the wild. The IUCN SSC Asian Species Action Partnership (ASAP) is an initiative aimed at reversing the declines in the wild of Species On The Brink of extinction – Critically Endangered land and freshwater vertebrates in Southeast Asia. Mauremys annamensis appears to be sympatric with M. sinensis over much of the former’s range, and local people have portrayed M. annamensis as naturally being fewer in number, with a 10:1 ratio of M. sinensis to M. annamensis described during ATP interviews (McCormack 2012 in CITES AC 28 Doc.

We ship Mondays thru Fridays. Eating bloodworms, Zoo Med Aquatic Turtle Food and Zoo Med ReptiSticks. Experience Level: Intermediate [?] Eastward extensions of mountains reaching to the sea form the northern (Hai Van Pass) and southern (Ca Pass) boundaries of the species' distribution (Iverson 1992, Le et al.

The rest of the year is spent in waterways. This reduction in observed occurrence within the trade, combined with loss in habitat and continued hunting pressures within its extremely limited known range, would suggest that M. annamensis is under serious threat of extirpation.”Field surveys for M. annamensis in recent years have been mostly unsuccessful, indicating that the species is now extremely rare in the wild (Hendrie 2000 in CITES Proposal 12.21) In 2006, one individual was trapped by scientists within natural habitat McCormack et al.

In recent decades, M. annamensis has only been reliably recorded from a single wild animal at one restricted location, although the species is suspected to occur in a few locations. Vitamin A Deficiency: Vitamin A is an important nutrient for your turtle’s health. Reptiles Conservation Actions. These small turtles are kept with the intention of raising them to a larger size before sale (thereby increasing their value) or in hopes of being able to breed the species in the future. [7] Hybridization in the wild would not seem to constitute a major threat, as the two parent species of "Ocadia" × glyphistoma are not closely related, and the hybrids are thus likely to be sterile. This rare Asian turtle is somewhat of a success story for captive breeding. ©2010 The Turtle Source, LLC. Collection of the species for trade reportedly began in the mid-1980s.

A few have very very slightly nipped tails. It has been considered extinct in nature for the last few years due to over-exploitation for the Chinese food market.
