    What book are you doing? Did you want the top ten size wise of all tortoises or just the ones that don't hibernate? Did you want average size or maximum size?

    I can make them as wise as I want,I just didn't want to get into the hibernation thin,and a. City of tortoises, I can go with sizes, and colors, how long they live, there's so many different dinamics, I don't want to go overboard, with stuff like this you can go on and on.
