Wild Tortoise (Turkey Country)

Wild tortoises are very common in Turkey, I've never seen as many while traveling around the country. They normally live very long, but unfortunately many of them get run over and killed by cars when they cross the roads (they are slow walkers, and they don't realize the danger from cars and trucks).
