The Burmese roofed turtle (Batagur trivittata) is a species of turtle in the Geoemydidae family. It is endemic to Burma, but was believed to be extinct until rediscovered in 2002. It remains very rare in the wild, but a conservation project has been successful and several hundred are now kept at the Yadanabon Zoological Gardens in Mandalay and a turtle conservation center in Lawkananda Park, Bagan.
An individual was seen in 2007 in Qingping Market in Guangzhou, China.
