One Good Shot: Mud Tortoise

This is actually a typical Aldabra tortoise (of the kind involved in the disturbing romantic interludes I previously witnessed and described) that has just emerged from a voluntary mud—well, I can’t say “mudbath” because it was more complete than that—mud-submersion, maybe: she had burrowed herself into the slimy stuff until only her shell was high and dry. Then, after a few days (really), she rose out of it, the Creature from the Tan Lagoon.

They know about a good spa treatment. Once that mud falls off, they'll look like . . . Cher!
