Elongated Tortoise

The elongated tortoise is a medium sized tortoise that rarely grows more than 3 pounds. They have a brown or yellow shell and are longer than they are wide (hence the name elongated tortoise). They come from the forests of Southeast Asia and are similar in care to a red-foot tortoise but don’t grow quite as large. They are a personable tortoise and a nice animal for any tortoise collection.
