This peaceful female wild desert tortoise came by our neighbor friend Angela de la Agua‘s house a few days ago. Notice her right front leg, which is missing toes and nails. A herpetologist friend says this tortoise likely got chewed on when she was younger but looks healthy now. Also pictured in these photos by Angela: her helpful patrol cat, the local legend Little Moon.
