Turtle Conservancy:

Our team down in Mexico got up close
and personal with perhaps the most unique of the box turtles, the
Coahulian box turtle
(Terrapene coahuila).

This endangered species is
also called the aquatic box turtle, because unlike all other members of
the genus Terrapene, they spend 90% of their life in the water!

Wow! What an incredible photo and as always, great work by @turtleconservancy

Teeny the tortoise. When it’s that hot, everyone enjoys a good stomp through the sprinklers!

PacoSpam: he’s a food hoarder who hates sharing and being watched. Look at the clover he picked up piling though his plate? Logic says to lay on your food as you eat it Apparently.
