wombat riding turtle
the animal kingdom is a strange and beautiful place
that is not a wombat
and that is not a turtle
That’s…. a hyrax, right?
And you wouldn’t BELIEVE the number of people I hear at work who call the tortoises “turtles” every time they see them. People think it’s interchangeable… just like whenever I hear someone ask if our corn snakes are “poisonous”. -eyeroll-
Speaking of, what IS the main differences between a land turtle (box turtle and etc) and tortoises? I’ve been asked that question before and I honestly don’t know (though I can identify the common species I see accurately).
