Nice photos. What a great variety of species! I love the tortoises! What species is the last one with the red on it?

First one yellow and black one is Indotestudo forstenii the one with the red I believe to be Chelonoidis carbonaria, a endemic to South America. Alot of traded animals get shipped via Singapore and Indonesia. ex. alot of Madagaskan animals that hit the pet trade has been around Asia first... guess it is to make it look like captive breed animals.

We also had Python molurus bivittatus, Python reticulatus, Crocodylus porosus, Tomistoma schlegelii, Iguana iguana, Cyclemys oldhamii, Siebenrockiella crassicollis, Orlitia borneensis, Manouria emys, Carettochelys insculpta (great breeding success more than 200 babies:)), Cyclemys dentata, Elseya novaeguineae, Chelodina siebenrocki, Trachemys scripta elegans, and a couple of other species I seem to have forgotten, as I recall we have 4-5 Chelodina species.

The red turtle looks like an adult Heosemys grandis?

Looking at photos on the internet Heosemys grandis doesn't have any red on it!?

Maybe H. spinosa is the better choice ;)

A few new species got tracked while in Sabah in the beginning of July...

First a Rana Chalconota, not really a new species I just like the picture - Bilit, Kinabatangan River

Then one that puzzles me... Is this a Kaloula baleata??? Some of the locals at the lodge thought them to be a species introduced for its tasty meat
