A Liesbeek Tortoise

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Here is the first photo of the fauna that inhabits the reaches of the Liesbeek River.

I found this tortoise crossing Liesbeek Avenue. I photographed him in the road and then gently put him on the side of the road to which he was headed.

I have no idea what species this is but I will do my best to find out. If anyone knows please let me know. Leave a comment.

While we wait for contributions to come pouring in, I will post a picture or two and also some articles about the fauna of the Liesbeek River.
