Donating to the Museum

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this fish.

"These relatives of common turtles will not let go when they decide to bite down on something. Although they can be quite shy, they will become a bit aggressive when threatened. They are often found in water and are very good swimmers because of the flat shape of their shells. They swim with their snouts over the surface of the water so they can breathe. Soft-shelled turtles aren't safe to hold because they are so prone to biting at the slightest movement. However, if one bites down on you, it will usually let go when you put it safely back in the water."

Further information

This turtle has found its way into many lakes and rivers around the world. Native to brackish water (water that is freshwater but salty), the species has done surprisingly well throughout a diverse array of other habitats. Due to the introduction of this species in many parts of Asia, it has become a considerable food source.

It is a nocturnal feeder that attacks and eats fish, crustaceans, insects and molluscs.

It is similar to the Northern Softshell Turtle which inhabits mainland Asia.
