SOUTHERN FLORIDA CORUCIA RESEARCH CENTER (SFCRC)

Thank you Mayday, I'll have to check it out. We have carbonaria at the SFCRC.

Sincerely,
Brian

I often hear from fellow redfoot keepers that Pritchard's
:TURTLES OF VENEZUELA is the best source of information on them and denticulata. It IS an excellent book with very interesting photos.
:However, the best account of them in my opinion, was done by Dr. Debra Moskovits in Brazil.
:Her study is titled "The Behavior and Ecology of the Two Amazonian Tortoises, Geochelone carbonaria and Geochelone denticulata, in Northwestern Brasil"
:It is available through UMI Dissertation Services in Ann Arbor Mich. 1-800-521-0600 or http://www.bellhowell.infolearning.com
:At 327 pages total it costs about $30.00 for unbound copies (which you can get bound at your local printer for a few bucks) or bound copies at around $50.00.
:Though there are no photos it is THE MOST IN DEPTH study of these tortoises that exists. I highly recommend it to those who are serious about these tortoises.
:I got my first copy from Debby years ago when she first completed it and I still refer to it often.
:While many of the graphs and charts are somewhat difficult (for me anyway!) the text is very interesting and informative.
