Attacking gopher tortoise!!! (not really)

Well, it sure seemed that way the other day when Connie and I came home to find one in the driveway. When I got out of the truck to take pictures and video, he (she?) just started marching in my direction like he meant business.


But apparently he just wasn't afraid of us much, and seemed to find comfort laying next to Connie's truck.

We followed him to his burrow, so hopefully we will see him around more often.
What a cutie! I think they have so much personality - we had one for about 10 years, but when I moved to the Pacific Northwest, she didn't do so well. She now lives with my brother in Southern California. Apparently, his chickens are terrified of her and whenever he lets them out the tortoise goes right for them.

Thanks for the share, she/he made me smile!
