pez the turtle

This is actually a fairly quick drawing of a baby western painted turtle named Pez. Kris discovered little Pez through Instagram, where they had a challenge to draw him. So, I did draw him, loosely basing it off of a photo of Pez. It's fascinating to see such a small, young painted turtle, since our guy, Gammera (an eastern painted) was roughly five-years-old and full-size when I found him in the middle of a busy road eleven years ago. Here's to hoping Pez has many happy and healthy years ahead on this earth!
