    Turtle identification

    This turtle was sold to me as Mauremys annamensis (Vietnamese Pond Turtle), but I have a feeling it is a Reeve’s Turtle. Could anyone offer me some help confirming or denying this? Also, what is the sex? I tried to check , but still I cant tell. Should I wait a little while until the yellow color appear?

    I know very little about turtles but I did find this youtube clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGYl5bNA1xA and I know they are very rare and critically endangered so I assume you have been sold a lie.

    The body pattern looks like a Reeve's turtle.
    Also, Reeves' turtle is classified as 'Endangered' on the IUCN Red List.

    It would be great if you can share photos from the top. So that we can see the shell pattern
