Flapshell Turtles and Bush Squirrels

These two photos have been added to the gallery. The pair of Flapshell Turtles were photographed in Sri Lanka. Their name is derived from flaps of skin that cover their limbs when they retract into their shells. The Smith`s Bush Squirrel (or Tree Squirrel) is native to the woodlands of the southern Afrotropics. Although they are primarily creatures of the trees, they will forage on the ground too, which is where this one was photographed in South Africa.
