i just learned about this place in thailand where the villagers keep free-roaming tortoises as "communal pets."

scroll about 2/3 of the way down on this page:

this page is in the thai language, but has some good pics:

if i ever find myself in thailand for any reason, i'd definitely want to visit! can anyone identity what kind of tortoises these are, out of curiosity?
