Known locally as 'angonoka', ploughshare tortoises are beautifully domed, big and slow moving reptiles... which is bad news for them, unfortunately. Young angonoka are brightly with coloured yellow and black/brown markings, and adults are a rich orange-brown colour. They take their name from the 'battering ram' type extension, used for fighting, on the lower part of their shell.
