Or maybe you do I have 4 sub species of thh

I have found some pictures of my Browns that Gordon put up for me a couple of years ago under the heading Burmese Browns on a thread started by Flintus on 13.02.2013 and to be honest they haven't changed much in that time just a bit heavier.

There is currently a "rear birmese tortoise" advertised on preloved
Your tortoises are stunning Mary - what approximate size/weight are they?

They are gorgeous Mary. It is strange to see an eyeball on a tort. They usually just look black.

Hi Vikki
They are between 18-20kg but not sure of their length. Yes Wyannis they are a bit different to most other tortoises and have had a brilliant day today as it's been very hot and humid just the way they like it!
