The elongated tortoise is widely spread in Asia, ranging from Nepal in the north to Malaysia in the South. They are listed as Endangered by the IUCN. The elongated tortoise is in great demand in Asian food markets. Consequently this animal is in serious trouble in the wild.
You can visit these tortoises in our tropical house.
