Meet the Burmese Star Tortoises

Star Tortoises (Geochelone platynota) are a threatened species of tortoise found in dry scrub areas of the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Rare in other parts of the world, these beautiful creatures have flourished in the Lawkananda Wildlife Sanctuary and other shady gardens around Bagan and we can take you to see them – a fun and educational experience for all ages. If the time is right, you may also have a chance to help feeding the star tortoises before returning to Bagan.
