Vipera Russelli
RUSSELL\'S VIPER (Daboia russelii) is a species of venomous snake in the family Viperidae . DABOIA is a monotypic genus of venomous Old World vipers . The single member species, D. russelii, is found in Asia throughout the Indian subcontinent , much of Southeast Asia , southern China and Taiwan . The species was named in honor of Patrick Russell (1726–1805), a Scottish herpetologist who first described many of India 's snakes, and the name of the genus is from the Hindi word meaning "that lies hid", or "the lurker". Apart from being a member of the big four snakes in India, Daboia is also one of the genera responsible for causing the most snakebite incidents and deaths among all venomous snakes on account of many factors, such as their wide distribution, generally aggressive demeanor, and frequent occurrence in highly populated areas. Daboia russelli is commonly known as RUSSELL\'S VIPER and CHAIN VIPER, among other names

Tortoise
TORTOISES (/ˈtɔːr.təs.ᵻz/ ) are a family, TESTUDINIDAE, of land-dwelling reptiles in the order Testudines . Tortoises are shielded from predators by a shell. The top part of the shell is the carapace , the underside is the plastron , and the two are connected by the bridge. The carapace is fused to both the vertebrae and ribcage, and tortoises are unique among vertebrates in that the pectoral and pelvic girdles are inside the ribcage rather than outside. Tortoises can vary in size from a few centimeters to two meters. They are usually diurnal animals with tendencies to be crepuscular depending on the ambient temperatures. They are generally reclusive animals. Tortoises are the longest living land animal in the world, although the longest living species of tortoise is a matter of debate. Galápagos tortoises are noted to live over 150 years, but an Aldabra giant tortoise named Adwaita may have been the longest living at an estimated 255 years
