This poor guy couldn’t reach his shell phone to call for help…then a pal came by to lend a helping
Submitted by Julie S., in honor of World Turtle Day today.
These emails came zooming in RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF WORLD TURTLE DAY SO WHAT’RE YA GONNA DO. Well, post ‘em, of course. Before we go any furthur- let’s clear one thing up.
Turtles live in an aquatic environment.
Tortoises are primarily land-dwelling creatures.
That’s it. Now on with the show.
First up is Cuteporter Rebecca, who sez: “Here we find Elliott, the African spur-thighed tortoise, enjoying an exciting snack of wheat grass and yellow squash in honor of World Turtle Day. He’s fun little dude. Note the hilariously demanding look at the end.”
“Elliott is 13 years old and weighs almost 30 pounds. He enjoys grass, baby carrots, yellow squash, and more grass. On a good day he will eat his hay, but he’s often naughty and refuses it.”
Then we have Emily R. “I saw your post on Turtle Day and I thought I should send you this picture I snapped of a turtle-tortoise thing (I don’t really know the difference *blushes*) in Croatia a few years ago. I nicknamed ‘her’ Terencia (hence the picture name) and I think her markings are just beautiful.”
Yo Emily! More on the diff between turtles and torties here.
Everybody flap your flippers!
Today is the 14th World Turtle Day, the annual holiday founded in 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue!
There are so many ways to celebrate! Starting with giving turtles a helping hand.
Another great way to celebrate is to donate to your favorite save the turtles organization!
But sweaters are better! Bring on the turtleneck jokes in 3, 2, 1 …!

I don’t know where you came from and I don’t care.
