Gopher Tortoise

This is a gopher tortoise that my husband spotted at the side of the road on our way into town one day last week. We have two gopher tortoise holes just outside of where the new pasture fence will be. Since they are a protected species here in Florida, we wanted to make sure the sheep could not disturb them. In the four years since we have been living here, we never saw one of the tortoises. This was our first glimpse of a live one.
