09-12-2010 - Geoffroy's sideneck turtle
The conservation status of the 3 three described species of the Phrynops geoffroanus group and the 10 or more undescribed species in this complex are not known. Because of the delicate nature of freshwater turtles some of these species may be facing extinction now before they have even been identified. We are conducting molecular studies to define these new species.
