desert

 

Breeding primarily in Europe, northern Africa, and western Asia, the European bee-eater is a colorful, thin bird. It has yellow and brown upper parts, with a black beak, blue or green belly and green wings. European bee-eaters commonly grow to between 10.6 and 11.4 inches (27 and 29 centimeters), although this length includes their elongated tail feathers, meaning its actual body isn't as long.

The Indian star tortoise is a species of tortoise (which also makes it a reptile and turtle) with a peculiar shell. It is most commonly found in the dry areas, scrub forests, arid forests, arid grasslands, and brushes of India, more specifically in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Although a land reptile, it needs plenty of water so it is especially happy and active during the monsoon season.
