The smallest land tortoise is the speckled padloper, or southern speckled tortoise (Homopus signatus cafer), rarely getting much past three inches. Egyptians are close, but can hit four or five inches. Of course Homopus are highly endangered, I don't think I've ever seen one in captivity - even in a zoo.

There is a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.
