This is my husband's photo, but I have his permission to post it.
This wild Desert Tortoise was spotted in Calico Basin area of Red Rocks, Nevada in February 2008.
The desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) is found throughout the Mojave Desert of California, Nevada, Arizona, Mexico, and Utah. The tortoise has survived for millions of years, but today they are an endangered species.
