Radiated Tortoise

Habitat: Reptiles

Native to the island of Madagascar, the scutes that make up the shell of this tortoise have a very striking coloration, with dramatic yellow markings “radiating” on a dark background, and the characteristic for which these animals were named. They are easy to spot in the Bush Family Tortoise Territory during the warm summer months.
