Desert Tortoise

The desert tortoise is the state reptile of Nevada and California.  Desert tortoises can live to be 60-80 years old.  Desert tortoises spend approximately 95% of their time underground.

Tortoise Burrow

The tortoise burrow provides a dry cool home for the tortoise and protects the tortoise from the extreme heat of the desert.  The burrow also provides a place for the tortoise to brumate (the reptilian form of hibernation) in the winter.
