    Abstract

    This turtle identification guide is based on several years of market investigations and literature search, finally settling on THE 126 species and subspecies that are most commonly traded in China. The most unique feature of this book is that only typical and consistent body color and external features are used, and the characteristics in the identification keys are illustrated with color photographs. In order to facilitate the use of this book by law enforcement officials, the distinguishing features are described in detail for every species and subspecies. This allows easy and quick identification by law enforcement officials who are not turtle experts, cross-checking to learn and confirm the identification of the turtle species in question.
