[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It's a land turtle. A very old one. There are too many scratches and abrasions on its shell. And, I think that it's probably kind of Testudo graeca .

I wish you like it.

Hello Ahmet,
A nice close-up shot of this particular turtle. Do you know what species this is? Is it a land or water turtle? It reminds me of the Box Turtles we have here in the southern pars of Ohio.

Looks like an Aldabra Giant Tortoise. I looked it up here >>> Tortoise.
Looks also as a female.
I've seen one personally, well over 150 years of age, in Bombay now called Mumbai in the Zoo in India.
A great Macro.
Where did you find this one?
Best regards from Canada from Mario.
