A group of #taricaya #turtles bask in the sun at Lago Sandoval in the #tambopata reserve in #madrededios , #peru . A #butterfly is taking advantage of the turtle’s #salty #tears — #salt is very limited in this part of the #amazon #rainforest due to its large distance from the #ocean , and #animals here get it any way they can. The reserve is an important #refuge for this species, which is facing pressure from #hunting and over harvest of its eggs elsewhere.
