For the second time in two years we have discovered tortlings in our front yard while mowing the lawn.
Either someone’s pet has been laying eggs where they don’t expect or there are feral sulcata tortoises living around here. At least I think they’re a sulcata tortoise. Might be a desert tortoise, not sure.
oh wow! Thats a bit crazy! They look like tiny sulcatas to me too but thats just on first glance. If you live in the desert they could be desert torts, though the spikes really do look sulcata like. So gorgeous. Have you contacted your local wildlife authorities?
