New pictures of Ellie.
Ellie is a wild Leopard Tortoise from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
She lives in a Villa where my girl friends daughter lived one summer. The guard at the Villa said that she showed up about 5 years ago.
The residents of the Villa occasionally feed her Injera which is a local bread made from the grass Eragrostis tef which is high in fiber, iron, protein and calcium.
Leopard tortoises from Ethiopia get huge.

I'm not able to see it either.

Any chance the pics could be posted without having to go through FB?

Even with logging into Facebook the image is restricted. Facebook has so many settings and rules, and oversight it may not be apparent to the OP.

Either way, why are we trying to see a leopard tortoise image in the sulcata thread?

I'm sure this will be hidden here, field study showing sulcata and leos as symaptic. So now it's sorta a sulcata thread again, yeah!

I finally found this post that references a field survey suggesting that Leopard and sulcata do have areas of overlap. But the URL now goes to a legal document. Dog-on-it. A little searching and I found the pdf, so it is here now up-loaded as a stand alone document, not just a URL.
