This #gophertortoise just giving me that suspicious look from his burrow. #tortoise can live a long time, this one can live until 40-60 years in the wild. Some of their burrows can be as much as 48’ long though this one is likely much shorter. Hope he enjoys a #beautifulfla day in #boyntonbeach #fl #florida (at Boynton Beach, Florida)


Pancake Tortoise (Malacochersus tornieri) is always good for a smile
when times are tough.

Named for its thin, flat and flexible shell, they
like to chill in tight spots where no one else can bother them.
Relatable! Help us help them and other tortoises by becoming a member of
