Caption: Yellow-footed Tortoise (Geochelone denticulata) being sold in the Belen Market in Iquitos, Peru. The Yellow-footed Tortoise inhabits Amazonian primary forests. The meat and eggs of this tortoise are highly esteemed throughout the Amazon region (note the bags of egg that were removed from the turtles during the butchering process). Many are caught in the wild as large adults while others are captured small and raised to marketable size.
