Face to face with a leopard tortoise in South Africa. I pretty handsome fellow I think. There is a legend in SA that when a tortoise crosses the road it’s going to rain. As luck would have it, he WAS crossing a road and wouldn’t you know it, after weeks of drought it rained an hour later. I guess Some legends are true! ~ taken while on safari at @molorisafari Lodge in Madikwe.
How amazing is that! Always knew we torties had magical powers. Zoya says there’s another legend that says if a tortoise is allowed to roam a yard, no dandelions will be present once they are gone.
