This is an Indian Roofed Turtle, and it is a baby.
This happened in an African river. The crocodile tried to pull the elephant into the water. But eventually the elephant pulled the crocodile onto the land and the crocodile released its bite and the elephant escaped.
Just look at the eyes, it feels like it is smiling for the camera.
Reptiles are a group of animals that include lizards and snakes, chameleons and geckos, turtles and even crocodiles. They are cold-blooded, they lay eggs, they cannot fly, they cannot breathe in water, and they are popular pets.
There was a Reptile Show last week-end at Twin Messe, so I took my children along. They loved to see and touch these animals. There were so many different kinds of reptile. For example there were more than 20 different kinds of turtle. But this wasn’t a zoo; all the reptiles were for sale.
Where did all these reptiles come from? Were they stolen from the wild?
