Testudo kleinmanni
In Israel, Testudo kleinmanni is active during winter. In summer the tortoises retreat to rodent burrows and their activity decreases. Decline of populations resulting from commercial collecting has resulted in its status as an endangered species. The behavior, activity, and thermal requirements of the species are examined.
