Testudo sp. Set of Three In Situ - Research Replica 
Detailed Images

Testudo is a genus of tortoise still living in North America, Asia and Europe. These three adult Testudo were found together in a burrow. This is indicative of a behavior known as brumation, wherein reptiles enter a hibernation-like state. Digging a burrow allowed the tortoise to avoid freezing and provided shelter. In the burrow they would enter a period of deep rest and inactivity, an important factor for their health and growth.

Available as an unpainted, unmounted cast suitable for some research or reference purposes. Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.
