This big guy, a Florida gopher tortoise, really wanted to show off his snack to Photographer Shane Srogi… or maybe he wanted to make sure Shane didn’t try and steal it 🙂  Gopher Tortoises are listed as a Threatened Species due to the continued loss of habitat. At least this guy seems to be living large at the Grassy Waters Wildlife Preserve in West Palm Beach, Florida.
