Here's the 1st of 3 terrapin pictures I'll be posting. From what I saw there looked to be around 8 or so of them in the Jungle Experience area, and this one was happily posing for me.

  • He doesn't look very happy does he. And, why don't the stripes on his eyes line up with the stripes on his body?

  • Nice nature shot. Your subject is well placed for maximum effect.

  • I like his stare at the camera. Somehow I don't think he's impressed! :-) Nice shot with just-right focus.

  • Why do turtles always look so grumpy? It's as if they're trying to say: Damnit, I wanna go fast, but I'm a turtle so I can't ;-)

  • That's great. His head reminds me of the aliens in the Fifth Element. I can just imagine what he's saying - "you looking at me?!!!"
