The Angulate Tortoise is a species of tortoise found in dry areas and coastal scrub vegetation in South Africa, and the only known member of the genus Chersina.

A small, shy tortoise with a relatively variable shell, they can often be distinguished by their prominent “bowsprits”, which are protrusions of the “gular” shields, from their plastrons under their chins. These are used by males to fight for territory or females.
