Well now you know Ladies, never leave your bras where a tortoises can steal them.
It would appear Kevin here had a few too many drinks this Christmas…
Kevin, our baby sulcata tortoise, has terrible depth perception. Sorry for the shaking; I was laughing. I’m a bad mom.
Now all we need is some mutagenic radioactive waste, Jackie Chan in a beat up Chuck E. Cheese outfit, a bunch of pizzas from Pizza Hut, and then we’ll have ourselves some real Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
These are a few of some 45 hatchlings from the Linton Zoological Gardens in the UK. They are African Spurred Giant Tortoises, also knowns as Sulcata Tortoises — the third largest tortoise in the world, second only to the Galapagos and the Aldabra Tortoises. Some babies hatched in August, but most did in September, making them about 8 weeks old when the picture was taken. All are eating well and growing.
This little fella hailed a tortoise taxi, but he didn’t realize the Tortoise Taxi Drivers Association was on strike that day. Poor little goat. Now he’ll never get home.
Following in the footsteps of giants.
A bowl of baby turtles… or is it a bowl of baby ninja turtles? Only time will tell.
I have a theory. The size of the turtle is inversely proportional to the amount of cuteness it contains.
