Slow Poke...


The desert tortoise is native to US southwest deserts. These are well-adapted animals that escape the heat of the day in burrows, and store water in their bladder. If you encounter a desert tortoise, please leave them be. If they get stressed (i.e. if you pick them up), they can void their bladder, losing precious water they need to live.
