Manouria emys emys and Manouria emys phayrei
The Burmese (Asian Brown and Black) Mountain Tortoises are currently represented by 1.1 of Manouria emys emys and an adult female Manouria emys phayrei (on breeding loan). These large East Asian tortoises are scarce in this hobby. Most imported animals come in dehydrated with large parasite loads. With adequate attention they can make full recoveries in a short amount of time. These tortoises benefit from high humidity areas such as mud bogs to wallow in. Reproductive success in captivity is not common and is typically marked by a single clutch of eggs for the season.
