Not A Meerkat Monday #8: Sulcata Tortoises

Sulcata tortoises do share the Kalahari Desert with meerkats, in fact meerkats have been known to steal their eggs. The tortoises are always too slow to catch them… Also known as ‘African Spurred Tortoises’ and is the third largest turtle species in the world. They can live for 70 years and grow to weight up to 230 pounds!

These photos sadly aren’t mine. I discovered them on Pexels. The sulcata tortoise at my local zoo was not feeling very photogenic last time I visited.
