Just a few pictures I thought you might all like to see. A stunning little tortoise.

Very cool record. You've gotta love the red "trimmings" on the outside of their shells.

I used to find quite a few of these in the centre of Kenilworth Racecourse. The herping there was excellent!

Thanks for the comments. This little guy was roughly ten centremetres across the carapace. I know there are still a few at the racecourse, unfortunately a fire a few years back wiped out quite a number of them.
