Nature is all around us

A few weeks ago while coming back from town John and myself saw a truck swerve out of the way of something on the road. From afar it looked as if it could have been a tyre or a rubbish bag that had fallen off of a truck but then while we were slowing down we saw it start to move to the side of the road. It so happened to be a leopard tortoise that was crossing the road, obviously he had learned from the Zebras…

We stopped and picked him up and placed him in the back of the vehicle and headed for Hopewell so we could release him back into the wild. He darted straight for the water and floated around for a couple of minutes and then made hiw way into the shade.
