Good heavens, I thought my husband was a messy eater, but this tortoise takes the biscuitTongue!
Hilarious well-timed shot, Brian, and I can't remember having seen inside a tortoise's mouth before.

I am not surprised he is angry after having food he could not get at it Smile

Nice shot Bri Smile

Stunning detail and perfect timing, Brian. Love the variety of textures and the animated expression of disgust - never seen that much character displayed by a tortoise before - LOL

I've been known to roar when I've had a pork chop plastered to my melon and I just can't get to it. My heart goes out to this poor tortoise.

A wonderfully detailed and timed capture of a tortoise's meloncholy, Brian.
