The textures and colors that emerged in this abstract fractal reminded me of the skin of the land turtles, lizards and snakes I used to catch and study as a child, hence the title.

Created primarily in Apophysis 7×15b as an abstract fractal based on the Sahar Tutorial by Epogh on DA from Forum #45 in Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Added Tx3 with plugin Curl3D, and Whorl (x3y4) & Bubble3D plugins in Fx. Gradient flare and partial image replications added in GIMP v2.8. Best if viewed larger.
