Gopher Tortoise (endangered species)

Gopherus polyphemus


Large tortoise, endangered in the state of Florida where photo was taken.


Sandy dune-like area near forested ravine.


Seen from car while driving into conservation area (with permit!). I wish I had a picture of the front, but I didn't want to disturb the animal by getting out of the car and approaching it.
