Tortoise Porn - 23/07/2011

Mating tortoises (species?). All the tortoises seemed to be "at it" and were quite vocal in their escapades, with the males grunting appropriately much to the embarrassment of some parents with a group of children.

      African Spurred (G. sulcata) by the look of it, you naughty, naughty, man. Is this zoogiraffe's influence? :D


      EDIT: I would wonder if these were rescue animals - the (ahem) lower animal in particular has a very lumpy shell, suggestive of a bad diet in the past.

      I cannot be held responseable for the the Tortoises doing what comes natural,and certainly not taking the blame for SMR taking the photo!!!!

      Heck, I hope not! :eek:

      Look away now... the fascinating thing was that the grunts from the males were not on the direction of stroke one would expect. I did come to my senses after a few minutes though and decided to discreetly move along.

      Not to be prudish. I have no problem with this photo, or its presence here, I just think the title is a bit crass.

      Thank you. Although the title was clearly intended to be humorous, your feedback is duly noted.

      @Maguari Hi. Yes they were rescues. Although they have a great diet now, the shell will always be this way unfortunately. Good teaching tool for the students though.

      However, there is no male tortoise in this photo :)
