Gopher Tortoise

Gopher Tortoise. San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park, Gainesville, Florida. 2014.

I was relieved to see the pleasant face of this Gopher Tortoise after the encounter with the rattle snake the other day. My friend and I were walking along when we saw the tortoise happily munching on leaves. It wasn't at all frightened of us, and in fact, it took a few steps towards us. We took our photos and then everyone went on with their day.
