Cuora flavomarginata Project with the Turtle Survival Alliance

theTurtleRoom partners with Turtle Survival Alliance working with Cuora flavomarginata

Anthony introduces a new project of theTurtleRoom — an assurance colony project in collaboration with the Turtle Survival Alliance and the Cuora flavomarginata Taxon Management Group. The Chinese Yellow Margined Box Turtle, Cuora flavomarginata, is classified as an endangered species by the IUCN Redlist. The animals we are keeping are still owned by the TSA. Of any offspring produced in our care, half will be ours, and half will be returned to the TSA with goal of eventual return to range countries into protected habitats.

Hatchling Cuora flavomarginata (Chinese Yellow Margined Box Turtle)This species was, for a time, classified under the genus Cistoclemmys along with the bourreti, galbinifrons, mccordi, and picturata species. The Cuora/Cistoclemmys argument rages on, and both genus names are heard being used throughout the scientific community.

For more updates on this new project, please watch our Projects section for a full project page on this species, coming soon. We will also post more updates here and on YouTube. Thanks for watching!

Update: Project page now available
