Elongated Tortoises inhabit primarily deciduous forest types (Sal, Dry Dipterocarp, Mixed Deciduous forests) with open, broken canopy allowing sufficient light for a moderate to very dense undergrowth of grasses and herbs; during the dry, leafless season animals may retreat to evergreen stream gallery forest.
Elongated Tortoises are critically #endangered in SE #Asia from losing 80% of their forest habitat #deforestation in the past 90 years. You can support their survival with your supermarket choices #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
