Chinese box turtle is an endangered Asiatic box turtle native to China, Taiwan, and Japan. This species is also known as the Yellow-margined box turtle, shìshéguī (which translates to snake-eating turtle), or Golden-headed turtle.
Although this is a hardy turtle, which is quite easy to care for, it is endangered. As such, they are not easy to find. This semi-aquatic turtle spends as much time in water as it will out of water. It is essential that the turtle enclosure is 50% aquatic and 50% terrestrial.
