You could say that, honeydogleo. This is how they sleep. :-)
Is he acting lazy?
Cool spotting. In what kind of place did you see it?
People always think tortoises are dead when they're sleeping. I could say the same for those people and their sleeping habits! ;-)
It must be a really hot weather there, even the tortoise is melting.
He really seems tired ;)
He looks a little tired of the name changes him/herself. Lol
The current scientific name is Aldabrachelys gigantea, but it's being debated with Dipsochelys dussumieri, which was assigned first. Taxonomy is so much fun! (sarcasm) ;-)
Welcome idale85. This is a tortoise rather than a turtle.
