ABSTRACT

Tortoises are the group of reptiles most under threat in Namibia and are poorly researched, with little understanding of their basic ecology. This paper investigates some aspects of the ecology of female Bushmanland tent tortoises (Psammobates tentorius verroxii) in southern Namibia, specifically their movement, home range, activity pattern, diet, resting site selection, and orientation.
