Flat-tailed Tortoise (Pyxis planicauda)

The
Flat-tailed Tortoise (Pyxis planicauda) is just one of the beautiful,
endemic tortoises of Madagascar facing extinction. In addition to
rampant poaching for the pet trade, this species has lost more than 70%
of its habitat in just three generations, leading to a population
decline of at least 60%.
