Fine art illustration of a Spider Tortoise (Pyxis arachnoides.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Spider Tortoise was completed on 11.3.10. Again, I get one step closer to completing all 300 extant species of turtles and tortoises on the planet. At last count I’ve gotten 34 done (13 tortoises, 21 turtles) so I have a ways to go. The drawing of the Spider Tortoise is based on a photo my Michael Ogle who works at the Knoxville Zoo in Tennessee, and has traveled to Madagascar to study and photograph the “at risk” wildlife there.
