Tortoise Collections

Life would be boring if we just stick to routines. The dilema should be that routines are the best way to keep birds in consistent form....

So to stray a little from routines, I have indulged myself with some cold-blooded friends ;-)

Leopard tortoise - saw some for sale in KL, but with a RM650 price tag, getting this fella a mate is going to be painful :-D

Red-footed tortoise - appears to be growing quite fast. Keeping a pair. One appears to be significantly bigger than the other.

Elongated tortoise - listed as endangered. My friend who kept it for some time (5 years?) said it's a female. Would be interesting if I could find a male.

Asian brown giant tortoise - need a license to keep according to the new law being enforced. The biggest tortoise specie found in Malaysia.

Yellow-spotted river turtle - originated from the jungles of Amazon....

Ah! how's that for a little diversion from all things avian :-D
