One of my very first animal releases was actually a turtle! We found her just sitting there on the floor in our village in Sumatra. No one knew how she got there since there was no water around so we guessed she may have been brought there by a cat who got bored of her prey. We checked if she's fine and took her back into the jungle were we released her right at a calm river. We stayed for a while to observe and I remember thinking "this is my favorite thing to do". You know how much I love videos of animals being released back into the wild. Yes I know it wasn't a Tiger or Bear nor any other cool giant. But even watching this tiny turtle running as fast as she could back into the water and sitting there enjoying herself filled me with so much joy!!
The picture is not the Turtle we released but one I found a couple days ago while walking my dog in the forest around Vienna. It's a Pond Slider (Trachemys scripta) and their name comes from their behaviour when startled. They are often seen basking in the sun on logs and branches, always ready to slide right back into the water when they sense danger.
I'm more of a mammal type of guy but lately getting more and more into reptiles and amphibians as well. So I wonder what's your favorite reptile or amphibian species? Let me know below and show me some colors I wanna see some unique species 🥰
