Nothing seemed more out of place to me than a turtle in the Mojave Desert, miles from any water.

    This reminds me that even though "we" get annoyed by things like this, in reality, we're the ones encroaching on their territory. we're destroying this planet and all these animals are just trying to deal with our crap. makes me wish we never advanced the way we did. the planet and its inhabitants would be so much better off. great capture by the way!

    It is a Mojave/Sonoran Desert Tortoise, California State reptile, and a threatened species - I have had one as a pet most of my life (rescue program, I didn't take it from the desert) and would love to see one in the wild. Well done, great pic!
