Tortoise 3 weeks old

By silliusmillius53
We found this baby tortoise. At this age they are very vulnerable to being preyed upon by the Pied Crow, who pick them up and drop them from a great height to break their shell. The mortality rate is very high at this time of their lives. This one spent time in a protected environment and now lives hapilly in the wild in the Belmont valley.
