Content: Title from folder.
Content: Written on border: "Testudo angulata" Printed on border: "Tortoises, turtles, and plesiosaurs" "Nearly related to the true tortoises, with which it agrees in the general structure of its shell, the areolated tortoise (Homopus areolatus) of South Africa, together with three other allied species from the same continent, differs by the absence of the median ridge on the front of the palate characterizing all the former, and is on this account referred to a distinct genus."
