I found this in Lat Pho Park, it's not the same as the typical park turtles.  Is it a Black Marsh Turtle?  About 35cm in length.

I honestly don't know but having looked in an ID book, I would think you could add Yellow-headed temple turtle (Heosemys annandalii) to the list of suspects.

Think you may be right.  I think also some of the images shown when I search Black Marsh Turtle are actually of the yellow headed temple turtle.
