Wow, a cross for sure, but beautiful. Although I don't believe in mixing species and wish mankind would stop, they can still be beautiful.
I guess a leopard and a star.

The only crossbred tortoises I have seen have a mixed pattern. This pattern does not mix at all. It looks like they took one Redfoot type tortoiseshell and just placed it on top of another tortoise.

Okay, I just googled that type of tortoise you mentioned. The adults do look real. But there's something about the picture of that baby that does not. Maybe because like all baby tortoises the colors are so vibrant when they're young compared to the adults. I'm glad I was wrong. Very cool looking toward us though.

"Bowsprit" is the name, as in:


...named for the extensive gular projection extending from the plastron.

Would have thought cross for sure or a fake. We don't get too see those on here.
But having a life outside this forum and tortoises, I dont study up on tortoises I don't want. Last statement for a peticular a**.
