What a great capture of one our wonderful Gopher Tortoises! There are some huge ones at one of local parks that are protected behind fencing. I love the days I visit and some are out and about. Love all turtles!

I love the Gopher Tortoises. I remember the first time I saw one. I was so excited, it was huge!
