World Turtle Day 2018

23 May 2018

This super-cute turtle is from our Library’s copy of Ulysses Aldrovandi ‘De quadrupedib[us] digitatis viviparis libri tres, et, De quadrupedib[us] digitatis oviparis libri duo / Bartholomaeus Ambrosinus collegit.’ (Bologna, 1637).

World Turtle Day is May 23rd each year and is celebrated throughout the world. It was started in 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue.
