just your average day in the city...

So I'm wandering past the Museum of Natural History the other day, when something catches my eye as it runs around their side lawn. I look over, expecting to see a dog of some kind - but what do you think I saw?
Its Mud, a tortoise from the Museum's herpetology department! :) There were two tortoises out there - apparently, the staff brings them out on the lawn to let them catch a little sun and snack on the grass as a bit of a treat.
Here's another shot of Mud, as he runs to catch up with his buddy - he's a quick little thing!

This one is Hermes... he was hiding out in the shade, munching on the grass and weeds.
I love the random things you see on a lazy Saturday afternoon in New York! :)
