PREVIOUS TORTOISE NEXT TORTOISE Thailand

The carapace of the Indian Star Tortoise has dark triangular to diamond shaped patterns against a pale yellow background, thus forming yellow radiating stripes that have star-like designs. Characteristically, it has six to twelve yellow radiating stripes, different from the Burmese Star Tortoise, which has only six or less (fig.). See also List of Thai Animal Names.
