Of course, the Horsfield's Tortoise is also native of Pakistan. Its range stretching from the north eastern shores of the Caspian sea, and extends eastwards, through the Russian steppe, to China. The Common name therefore, "Russian Tortoise", is a little misleading.

I do not understand why no one was arrested. If no one else was at least the person that entered the crates as normal cargo should have been charged. Someone should be held accountable. :x
