African spurred tortoise

She looks old and wise, but this is deceptive. He is a young male, with about 20 years and 50 kg, a teenager. I've met him in The Gambia.

  5. Das ist fantastisch! Ein tolles Porträt …auch wenn die Schildkröte nicht sehr amüsiert dreinblickt.

  8. Oh, what an amazing shot! Both versions are great, but I really love the grittiness of the b&w version.
