WE HAVE BABY SRI LANKAN STAR TORTOISE FOR SALE. HERE ARE SOME HIGHLIGHTS:
Sri Lankan Star Tortoise have yellow shells with dark brown or black patterns, even though it looks like they are dark with yellow stripes. Head and legs are yellow or light brown and spotted in both Sri and Indian.
Sri stars can be somewhat delicate and they tend to be sensitive to cold and long periods of high humidity in cold conditions. They are prone to respiratory problems if kept too cold and damp. Sri stars are not the best choice as a first tortoise, but captive-bred Star tortoises can do quite well when provided with the correct environmental conditions and appropriate diet.
Sri Star tortoises are born with yellow “butterfly” or “bow” patterns on their shells. These butterflies develop into star shapes with growth. Sri Star babies typically hatch with a four point star pattern on each scute. The new lines start as little spots and then get longer and grow more lines with age.
This is different when compared to a Burmese Star tortoise, who have a very clear six point pattern on most of their scutes and the star patterns meet each other exactly, to form net pattern. The number of lines on the Burmese star stays the same as the tortoise ages from hatchling to adult. We know that our Sri Lankan tortoises came from Sri Lanka as the breeder we get them from has documentation.
