    Ragunan Zoo labelled their large softshell turtle as a "Indian narrow-headed softshell turtle (Chitra indica)", but I think it's just a mislabelled Javanese narrow-headed softshell turtle (Chitra chitra javanensis).

    I can only find one picture of the individual:
    REPUBLIC OF GIS: Visiting Chitra-chitra (Asian narrow-headed softshell turtle) in Ragunan zoo, Jakarta

    Let me know if I missed any species or zoos/aquarium that currently/formerly keep the species.

    My last visit is in around 26th of December, and I remember seeing them in there though, in the Reptile Garden, I believe. The wikipedia also still lists the Indian Star Tortoise there.
