Tiny Tuesday! This tiny tortoise is nearly the size of a grape.

H
appy Tiny Tuesday, friends. Take a look-see at this miniature tortoise. He's trying with all his might to bulldoze a grape! That little toot.

He is one of just 7,500 Kleinmann's Tortoises, a critically endangered species originating from the deserts of Egypt and Libya. At full maturity, they barely reach 4.5 inches in length. I did the math, and I figure I could fit all 7,500 of them stacked neatly inside my walk-in closet.
