Tortoise shell

I got the tortoise shell from a friend, it was her pet tortoise that had died a long time ago. We took it home and I cleaned it up because it was covered in cobwebs and dust. The outer plates have fallen off because the tortoise shell is very old. But if you are careful you can put them all back on the shell.I haven’t glued them back because I like seeing the cartilage.Please click on the photos to see them closer.
