The Annam Leaf Turtle, a terrapin also called the Vietnamese Leaf/Pond Turtle, is endemic to a small area of central Vietnam but is nearly extinct in the wild.
Formerly common in its area, is was thought to be extinct by the 1940s or 50s but more recently a small population has been discovered.
It has been driven to near extinction by its popularity in turtle soup. Other Asian Turtles are now used and declining, but
the rare Annam Leaf Turtle is also still collected for the food market.
