Well I came outside this morning and found the oddest creature walking around my yard. It looks like a tortes with long legs and strange, tube like things on its back. After watching it for awhile I saw something even more amazing. Steam actually shots out of those tubes in its shell! Needless to say the first thing I did was close the gate so it couldn’t wonder off then went and grabbed my camera to take these pics.
The shell is rough like stone and looks brownish green with some mold growing on it. Along with some streaks of ash. Its skin is also a brownish green color and very leathery. No teeth that I’ve been able to see yet but I did catch it chewing on one of my sprinklers. Really seems to like water.
I also took a few pics after dark, it’s hard to see but there’s a red glow coming from inside of it.
P.S. because I plan to keep this guy, girl? (How would I check that?) I’m also looking for a good name for him/her.
