Last week my friend Tracey & I took a baby squirrel to a rehabber. When we arrived that evening, we found a rural area that had large enclosures full of rescued and rehabbed critters from all over the world. A truly awesome place called Cathy's Critters. I only got a few shots as it was fast getting dark. This huge turtle caught my eye. I had never seen an African spurred tortoise before. Also known as a sulcata. They are native to the southern edge of the Sahara desert, in Africa. They are the third-largest species of tortoise in the world.
