Indian Star Tortoise

The attractive star-like patterns on the shell of the Indian star tortoise actually help the tortoise to blend into its surroundings more easily, as well as looking very pretty.

The distinctively marked shell of the Indian star tortoise, actually breaks up the hard line of its shell when it is grazing, making this reptile not so obvious to passing predators.

DID YOU KNOW? The lighter the shell the warmer the place of origin is.
