Baby Hitches a Ride


This baby turtle getting a free lift on his mommy’s head is only 4 days old, 2.17 inches long, and weighs less than an ounce — only 0.88 oz!
He’s an African spurred tortoise, Geochelone sulcata, one of 8 babies born to the same mommy turtle at the Nyiregyhaza Animal Park in Hungary.

The 8 babies had hatched after 115 days.

Wow. That is so amazing! There’s so much beauty in nature, even in unexpected places, like a turtle’s back. HA!

Awww! That’s so cute. They’re very small when they’re still babies but can grow very huge when they become adults. =D
