Periodical Index - Tortoises

A guide to testudinate chelonian articles appearing in herpetogical periodicals over the past few years


Tortoises are among the most popular of reptile pets, even among those who otherwise have no interest in reptiles, and this popularity is reflected in the large number of articles on their care, particularly in Europe with members of the Testudo and Agrionemys genera. This list does not claim to be exhaustive but does give many of the hobbyist articles published since the mid-to-late 1990s (from 1979 onwards if you count articles printed in the German language Sauria).

Some issues of some magazines have been wholly devoted to Mediterranean tortoises, eg Draco 2 and 32. Draco 48 is also dedicated to outdoor enclosures for tortoises.
