Range- Eastern India, Southeast Asia, as far south as Borneo.
Habitat- A lot like the Forstens, the Elongated tortoise is found in thick, deep-forested areas, both wet and dry forest areas of South East Asia. They inhabit a wide variety of different rainforest throughout Southeast Asia. However, both portray similar fauna conditions. These animals, again like the Forstens, are a crepuscular species. They have excellent eye sight, as they tend to become more active in very limited light conditions.
Diet- Dark leafy greens, broadleaf greens and plants, fallen fruits from trees and fruiting plants, worms, slugs, carrion, and amphibians.
Size- Males and females tend to stay rather close in size. Adult specimen reaching 12-14”.
Conservation- Elongated is threatened and have a wild population numbers plight due to Asian food markets, medicinal use, and pet trade. This species, although a bit easier to breed in captivity than the Forstens, does still pose a high level of difficulty to establish in captivity.
