Elongated Tortoise (Indotestudo elongata)

This
gorgeous animal is an Elongated Tortoise found
in Nepal. Like many beautiful chelonians, it is critically endangered
and is in severe decline across its range, driven by habitat
destruction, poaching for the pet trade, and most of all, use in
traditional Chinese medicine.
