Hey everyone. The other day, on Reddit, I happened to spot an adorable picture in /r/aww of a whole army of baby turtles (or tortoises?) with their mommy. Check it out! Count them all. There are quite a few. The best part? I’d wager there are even more, outside of the frame of the photograph.
Okay, okay, it does indeed seem that up to and including this post, every tortoise-related post involves a tiny tortoise and some kind of fruit or veggie. With no intention of being repetitive, I decided to post this baby tortoise because he’s too adorable! Tiny Tim was born at Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire, England in 2011. According to metro.co.uk’s article, Tiny Tim was born weighing 6g but will reach a full size of 500g.

Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. Do you see how tiny this little tortoise is? What a cutie! The Egyptian tortoise (a.k.a Kleinmann’s tortoise) lives in desserts and semi-arid habitats according to Wikipedia Kleinmann’s Tortoise article, though they are now virtually non-existent in Egypt. Unfortunately, they are critically endangered, but thankfully zoos are breeding them.
Anyway, this little baby tortoise is tiny and adorable and we’re happy to have him here on ACAD.
Has anybody noticed that animals always look cute when they’re eating? It’s a strange phenomenon, but I think I have the explanation for it. It’s their tongues! Animal tongues are automatically cute (except maybe snakes!) and they’re usually present in photographs of animals eating. This little tortoise is well equipped with an adorable tongue to go with the rest of his cuteness. Be sure to pay attention to the leg scales, too! How goofy are those?
