Radiated tortoises are growing scarce across the red Malagasy soil. These Madagascar natives are now the most common tortoise for sale in Bangkok's infamous Chatuchak wildlife market. According to a new report by WCS and partners, more than 1,000 critically endangered radiated and ploughshare tortoises have been confiscated from smugglers in the first three months of 2013 alone.
