Cousin? Or Freak of Nature?!

Nah, just the Batagur Baska, the northern river terrapin, one handsome (and most unusual) species of riverine turtle!
























Unfortunately, it is also one of the most critically endangered turtle species according to a recent assessment by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).
