This page is indexed on our home page under Aspect: 8. Links - Species Specific and the Section: Tortoises

Introduction and Index : Tortoises

In this section on : Tortoises we present articles and links relative to information on Tortoises. As some sites deal with both Tortoises and Turtles we have had to cater for those sites as a separate topic. So please view either of the other two that have a bearing on your current interest.

We have dealt with some of the more popular species that are kept as pets in detail on separate pages, under various topics such as natural habitate, captive care, habitat, breeders, pictures etc.

Egyptian Tortoise - Natural History & Captive Care
This website is devoted to the Egyptian tortoise, Testudo kleinmanni (Lortet, 1883), the smallest member of the Mediterranean family of tortoises. It is as much an enigma and a mystery as the ancient land of Egypt where its natural history has unfolded.
Homopus Research Foundation (Namaqualand speckled padloper)
The most important barrier for the long-term survival of Homopus is the current lack of knowledge on these tortoises. Without basic information on their distribution, population size and dynamics, and ecology, it is impossible to determine their conservation requirements, and to develop conservation strategies if necessary. Therefore, the Homopus Research Foundation focuses on research on Homopus, both in captivity and in the wild. In the past years, a number of initiatives were launched, most of which are long-term commitments.
Slowcoach is a site for people who keep tortoises
Slowcoach is a site for people who keep tortoises. Although Slowcoach is UK based and deals mainly with European and Mediterranean Tortoises, comments and ideas are welcomed from anybody who has an interest in these wonderful creatures. These pages,hopefully, will benefit both beginners and experienced tortoise keepers alike.
