Congo, Democratic Rep. 1-FRANC (KM81) Upemba Mud Turtle
I'm calling it: This is Pelusios upembae -- the Upemba Mud Turtle. How do I know? I don't for sure, but of the 15 different turtles found in Africa, P. upembae is the only one endemic to the Congo. Also, it looks just like the depiction on this coin, so there's that.
This coin was minted in 2002 only.
