The tiniest friend

A baby, perhaps? No! Speckled tortoises (aka speckled padloper or speckled cape tortoises) are just that smol!

An adult! Palm sized! Wonderful!

More dandies? Yes!

They’re from South Africa, Little Namaqualand specifically, and they like the succulent plants that grow there. Have I mentioned they’re smol?

Now that’s their baby! Males grow to 6-8 cm while females grow to a whopping 10 cm!

In conclusion, they are smol and good

The most important science!!
