Gopher Tortoise

Gopherus polyphemus


Observed in a County nature Preserve behind the band pavillion. It had dug its burrow in dry sandy soil at the edge of a primarily Oak hammock that is across from a Pine sand hill area.


It appeared as if he was trying to make his mind up to come out and get some sun or not.
