It was a day off with warm weather so Tito and Nico hunted here and there exploring various places. They are great explorers!
Help My studies are under attack
I’m postive your teacher will understand. Happens all the time 😂
It’s not even June and I’ve met all these lovely turtles!
½. Lovely snapper who fell in my neighbors window well. dug around a lot in there so I assume it’s a female looking to lay eggs. Look how long her neck is in the second pic! Luckily she wasn’t super defensive bc this one kid put his face super close to her.
2. Found this guy on the road. It’s alive, just hiding! Friend was returned to the grass.
3. Babies! They’re so damn cute! I’ve seen 3 so far and I love them all. I love seeing the variations in their shell patterns too, especially since these guys probably came from the same clutch.
Submitted by @imwiththedroid Who, whoa! is clearly on the good side of the turtpocalypse! The shells are flocking to you! you’re a chosen human!
Penny thinks my green phone case us for eating.

Gotta love a pet tortoise friendly cafe. This awesome lady walked into Little Ireland Cafe in Pacific, Missouri. #spot77 #turtle #turtles #tortoise #coffee #zoo
hey, Sulcata tort parents definitely need coffee to keep up with those shells and their shenanigans!

Pebble is a dedicated (and surprisingly good) climber.
Thats right people.. don’t be surprised. Some of our shell friends can basically walk on walls (or will keep trying till they can)
Holy smokes! What an AWESOME treat!
This mama diamondback terrapin is my lifer nesting dbt. I’ve seen dozens out in the marsh, but this one is my first on land (not counting those in captivity/rehab). She’s gorgeous, isn’t she?
Happy Mother’s Day!!!

The turtle and tortoise hatchlings pictured here, some about the size of quarter, are part of assurance colonies at the Bronx Zoo’s World of Reptiles. Nearly all of these species are reproduced according to recommendations from Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) programs. SSPs manage populations of species in AZA zoos and aquariums for genetic viability and demographic stability, in order to ensure that captive populations are healthy and could be safely reintroduced to the wild if needed…
