That looks like a group of Manouria tortoises...either Manouria emys emys or Manouris emys phayrei. It is sometimes hard to distinguish tortoise species by looking at the hatchlings. Is there any way you could post a picture of the adult tortoises?

Try right clicking and then selecting 'view image'. I had the same problem.

Well, I tried to save the picture to "My Photos" but its a facebook picture and shows up in my file as an un-opened file. I'm not able to get it for you. For those with GOOGLE chrome, you right click on the rectangle image and choose "open image in new tab" Then look up at the top of your screen and you'll see a new tab that you can click on. The picture show up.

I'm thinking that the baby in the upper left corner is a box turtle.

It's a Facebook album. The first picture is the one the OP posted, I put the others as well in case they help.

Well, I take it back. That light colored head doesn't look like Manouria.

I'm thinking of some of the ones in the crate, you are probably right, there are very few indotestudo keepers in the UK, and none which have forsten's, so it is just going by what I have seen.
