I start my new job today. I’m nervous and excited, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. This morning, I’ll share some favorite Tortoise Day photos. These are juvenile flattail tortoises, a species of dwarf tortoise from Madagascar. My zoo’s breeding program has been pretty successful, which is exciting since this species endangered in the wild. Flattails are mushroom specialists, but they also enjoy blooms off of certain plants when they can get them.
Have a great day!
