Is it a box turtle ? Do you know which species of turtle it is ?
Turtles , crocodiles , even great blue herons , they all seem so ancient , as if they are still in dinosaur era.

this is an ornate box turtle

I had the Viltrox 56mm out for some use the other day, it really is a great lens.

It's one of those lenses that just seems to make any shot look good.

When reading up about 23mm and 56mm lenses some reviews stated that the Viltroxes are better than the Fujinons. I can't vouch for that as I haven't tried the Fujinons, but for the difference in price if the performance is even close then the Viltroxes make more sense. The number of Fujinon 23 and 56mm lenses on the used market has shot up since the the Viltroxes came out, I think people are seeking them to get the Viltrox equivalent and a bit of spare cash.

Beautiful ornate box turtle. Could be eastern or western, depending where it was found, if wild.
