  Southeast Asia box turtles have smooth shells with bulging edges. The height of their shells is about half of the shell length.

The shell on the belly of the turtle is divided into two halves, which can move. After the head and its four limbs draw back into the shell, its belly shell can completely join with its back shell. The turtles are of oviparity and they produce their eggs from April to June each year. They can produce 3-4 times each year and they produce two eggs each time. Their eggs are white and are oval-shaped. The shells of the eggs are fragile. Young turtles are completely hatched in water. The turtle is quite gentle and timid.
