Nair, P N Radhakrishnan and Badrudeen, M (1975) On the occurrence of the soft-shelled turtle, Pelochelys bibroni (Owen) in marine environment. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 22 (1&2). pp. 270-274.
A soft-shelled turtle, Pelochelys bibroni (Owen), caught alive from Palk Bay — a new record from the sourther part of lndian peninsula — proves beyond doubt that the species can tolerate the marine environment, as against the belief that it is purely a freshwater form. The behaviour of the animal was studied keeping it under captivity for 14 days.
