Tortoise is curled up for the night, protected by a bit of fallen chaparral.

The vibrant dusk of a Dreamy Desert is perfect for any space and encourages restfulness and joy. The happy animals depicted in this peaceful, watercolor series rest under a dreamy sunset filled with smiling stars.

Painted in K. Ryan Henisey’s award winning style, each illustration originally appeared in Dreamy Desert, an illustrated sleepy time ebook for children.

Reds and yellows blossom under a deep, restful sky. Each animal type is prominently displayed in a pose of restful sleep. Smiling stars keep watch over the dreaming landscapes.

Find your rest in the Dreamy Desert. http://kryanhenisey.com/art/

Tortoises: An Anatomy Lesson (Bones and Beaks)

The last set of bones and a quick blurb about beaks. When a tortoise is flipped it has difficulty breathing (more on that later) and it gets confused, but it can typically use its head and paws to get back on its feet with a little effort.

Parts 1 and 2: Shells

Part 3: Skeleton
