Cuora praschagi (Blanck et al. 2023)
Cuora praschagi, is a highly terrestrial species of Cuora and inhabits eastern India as well as adjacent Bangladesh. It has a high-domed carapace with yellowish stripes along the costal and vertebral scutes. It reaches sizes of 19-24 cm SCL.
While generally still pretty abundant in many parts of its range, C. praschagi is still intensely hunted for local consumption and export to China, and some populations have been heavily depleted.
