Thanks for the info Gerardo. I enjoy learning about local turtle names. This one should be added to the Captive Animals mission:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7973...
Yes, this one is a captive animal. Here in Venezuela we call they morrocoy, but I'm not sure if the common name it's Red-footed Tortoise
Just wondering if this is a captive animal because of the fencing in the background? I like the colorful red markings! Is the common name Morrocoy Tortoise or Red-footed Tortoise? I'm familiar with the red-footed name but not Morrocoy. Is Morrocoy a local name?
Here in Venezuela they are everywhere.
where can you find these tortoises?
