Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale (I)


Friday 06 February, 2015 by Uncle Spike

This week’s first entry from me for the Weekly Photo Challenge really shows scale indeed, just look at this baby tortoise we found wandering across our farmyard! We have many many wild tortoises here in southwest Türkiye, but this is the smallest we’ve come across I think to date.

Used this image before on my blog, but he’s so darned cute, don’t you think? Anyway, hope you enjoy this entry.

    He is really cute and looks so small I’m glad he didn’t get stepped on. My big dogs would never have seen him 🙂

    You nailed it with that photo!


  13. What a sweet photo, Uncle Spike! A nest of little turtles similiar to yours hatched in our garden this summer. We spent half a day watching them emerge from their nest and fan out across the garden. A wonderful photo for the challenge, what with their “scaly” legs and faces 😉 Best wishes, WG

    I absolutely adore this photo…you can see the face! On the complete opposite of scale / size, I posted about the giant Pacific Leatherback turtle on my blog. They can weigh over 2,000 lbs!

    Did you notice any of its other mates? Perhaps, y’all could adopt it until it matures.

  23. A teenage girl I know has a baby tortoise that size. It’s called Tallulah and, yes, it’s very cute like the one in your photo.
    Has Spike Junior read Roald Dahl’s book, Esio Trot (tortoise spelled back to front)? I saw a film of it recently on television, starring Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench, plus a whole load of tortoises of all sizes. It was brilliant and very funny.

    He is amazing. Don’t think I saw the image before so glad you posted it again. It reminds me of the tiny frogs we sometimes see, but I have never seen such a small tortoise.
