    My favorite for color is the Radiated. Very domed and beautiful color.

    That I have seen in person, then I think my choice is an Indotestudo Elongata. The Tortoise that made me fell in love with the species. I still vist him from time to time. He is the reason why I have my Turt.
    And of course Turt and Indu themselves, and my little Sterretje. I also love baby Star Tortoises!!

    My second would probably be a toss up between the stars, leopards and the ploughshare. I love the high domes and color of the ploughshare but the colors more of the stars and leopards.

    I know they're not tortoises per se, but I think Diamondback Terrapins are incredible!!!
    But Central American Wood Tortoises are gorgeous, too...I better not get started...I can't stop at just one!!!:D

    I think that overall the radiated tortoise is the most beautiful. Stars, Bowsprits, Galops, pancakes, hermanni, RFs and leopards all deserving honorable mention.
