‘Blandings Turtle’

These little dudes are super charming! Unfortunately they’re also endangered, but fortunately you can help!

If you also think these little buggers are super cute and you have some pocket change consider donating to The Canadian Wildlife Association, Sierra Club or The Global Footprint Network

Here’s a little something I don’t think I, or anyone in my family has ever posted about. We have a big ass turtle that lives in our house. It’s name is Taco and Taco will probably out live us all, I think I’ll take Taco out to spend time in the sun tomorrow. #taco #turtle #adayinthesun #evillejs #evillejscreepycloset #evansville (at Eville J’s Creepy Closet)

Hi Taco!

This
tiny, adorable baby Hingeback Tortoise (Kinixys erosa) was born in our
Conservation Center.

This species is native to the rainforests of
Western and Central Africa where it is threatened by hunting for food
and the pet trade, as well as habitat loss by deforestation due to
agriculture and logging.

Box turtles are small, terrestrial chelonians with a unique hinged shell enabling them to completely withdraw their head and legs into the shell and close like a box. The tortoise tends to be larger, and the shell does not hinge. Most turtles prefer moist environments, where as, the tortoise tends to be found in dry environments.
