New beginnings in Ferlo

Posted 09.12.2013 by Team - View comments

The tracking of the furrowed turtle continues… 

With the rain returning in September the turtles and the other animals of the Ferlo take advantage of the new sprouts.

They prepare themselves for the dry season; eating is one of their main activities. The fat reserves they take on during the rainy season have a vital importance during the dry season. Little by little, the sulcata turtle will be reducing  its activities until February and then remain underground in its burrow waiting for the next rainy season. She doesn’t eat or drink for about 6 month.
