Scribbled Underline

Female Indian star tortoises grow to lengths of 10 to 12 inches compared to males' 6 to 8 inches.

They weigh 3 to 14 pounds when their enormous shells are added.

The exquisitely crafted shell of the Indian star tortoise breaks up the turtle's form and effectively serves as camouflage.

Additionally, if turned on its back, its convex shell makes it simple for them to flip back over.

The head, limbs, and tail of Indian star tortoises are usually tan, but they may also have dark patches on them.

Tubercles, which resemble scale-like perturbations, are everywhere over their thick legs.

The diurnal Indian star tortoise is most active in the morning and late in the day.

They will stop moving and stop eating for extended periods of time during unusually hot or cold spells.
