Pulled this lovely little Long Neck Turtle off the road! So lucky they didn’t get hit as there was lots of traffic.
Weren’t a big fan of us and wriggled a lot, they seemed to like the camera though :3c
The Arboretum is breathtaking, literally, I was short of breath after being under the sun for hours. But look at these cool turtles 🐢

This Tortoise Could Be Extinct in 20 Years
Endemic to the dry southern forests of Madagascar, the radiated tortoise has an incredibly long lifespan—the oldest tortoise on record reached an estimated 188 years of age. They boast highly intricate, dome-shaped shells lined with blood vessels, making them sensitive to the touch. Due to hunting and the illegal pet trade, the species has seen a 50 percent decrease in their population over the past decade. It is estimated that a staggering quarter of a million radiated tortoises are harvested each year. Because of these constant threats, conservationists have estimated that these tortoises could go extinct in less than 20 years.
Please reblog and spread the word.

Found this cute eastern box turtle today when I was walking my parents dog. Don’t worry I put him back in the direction he was originally going in 😊💕
