279. This is why you should always keep a camera in your car...

In case you find one of these in the road!

Also, this is proof if ever it were needed that we need to drive carefully as Ricky says.
onlyricky OMG

Wild Turtles in UK? o_O

????? Ricky, this is a tortoise, like the one that gave the hitch-hiking snail a lift in the true story I told you remember?
Wonderful find Jon...what did you do with him? Did you find the owner? was there a big reward LOL or are you now stuck with a new member of the family? :-))))

onlyricky But Damn, How can a big thing like that be in a street o_O
Now talking in tortoise then you're right! We have such turtles here too, but def, this one looks bigger than the ones i'm used to see! This seems to have about almost 40 cm! while the ones i see here have from 5 to 30 cm I guess!
Indeed we never know what we can find in a road :)

smbunation Wow. That really is a huge 'tortoise' to find in the middle of the road. Agreed, always, always, always carry a camera with you.

????? OMG!!
He becomes your new pet??
I'm shocked again!
Maybe someone put a little pet in the garden, forgot it and it grew like a cute monster eating all the grass!
What did you do with the tortoise?? Please, bring us up to date!

LysMandala Amazing!

????? You're right! I rescued a snapping turtle about that size from a local road a while back. It tried to bite me (and they are so strong that can be very dangerous). I fortunately had a towel which I bunched up in front of my hands and all he bit was the towel. That's gratitude for you!
