Asian forest tortoise

The Asian forest tortoise known as the Asian brown tortoise, is a species of tortoise in the family Testudinidae. The species is endemic to Southeast Asia, it is believed to be among the most primitive of living tortoises, based on molecular and morphological studies. There are two recognized subspecies: M. e. emys occurring in southern Thailand, Sumatra, Borneo. The latter was named after Sir Arthur Purves Phayre, British Army officer in India who became Commissioner of British Burma. Based on a variety of phylogenetic characteristics, the genus Manouria is regarded as comparatively primitive and basal to other Testudinidae; the Asian forest tortoise is the largest tortoise in mainland Asia. The largest adults of the northern subspecies, Manouria emys phayrei, can reach 25 kg in the wild and much more than that in captivity; the carapace is depressed, its depth not half its length. The plastron is large, gular region somewhat produced and notched, hind lobe notched; the head is moderate in size.

The forelimbs anteriorly have large, pointed, imbricate tubercles, forming four or five longitudinal series. The hind limbs have large bony tubercles on the plantar surface, with others larger and spur-like on the heel, a group of still larger conical tubercles on each side on the back of the thighs. Adults are dark blackish; the carapace of juveniles is yellowish brown, with dark-brown markings. The Asian forest tortoise occurs in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam. Manouria emys is the only tortoise which lays its eggs above ground in a nest, which the female constructs of leaf litter; the female uses both front and rear legs to gather material for the nest and lays up to 50 eggs deep inside it. She sits on and near the nest to protect it, will "chase" predators and intruders away. Anderson J. "On Testudo Phayrei, Theob. & Dr. Gray". Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist. Fourth Series. 8: 324–330.
