Yellow-Footed Tortoise (Chelonoidis denticulata) from Grand Matoury, French Guiana
At the Los Amigos Biological Station.
Adult heading back into the rainforest at Maipaima Ecolodge, Nappi Village, north Kanuku Mountains, Rupununi, Guyana, South America.
This young tortoise was about the size of the palm of my hand (ca. 10cm). Hopefully, it will survive to become an adult of the third largest mainland tortoise species on Earth. Sadly, an endangered species.
Rainforest around the Maparri River, Kanuku Mountains, Rupununi, Guyana, South America.
The yellow-footed tortoise (Chelonoidis denticulata, formerly Geochelone denticulata) is a species of tortoise in the family Testudinidae and is closely related to the red-footed tortoise (C. carbonaria). It is found in the Amazon Basin of South America.
