This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals

The palm-size bog turtle, smallest in the country, now survives mostly on private lands. Adapted to soggy soils, the species suffers where wetlands are filled or groundwater is diverted.

本月每日一图的主题是:动物

这只巴掌大的牟氏水龟是这个国家里最小的一种龟,现在大多生活在私有土地上。依赖于潮湿的土壤,这一物种正因湿地被填和地下水开采而受到威胁。
