Local fisherman with a female river terrapin (Batagur baska)

A local fisherman living along the Setiu River in Terengganu state, Malaysia holds up a large captive female river terrapin (Batagur baska). The turtles are captured when they emerge to nest and kept in captivity until they lay their eggs, which are collected and sold.
