Re: It's not a great picture, but...

@bare65 - yes but I know the owner of that vehicle so I told him to check around and under his car before taking off today  that day. Though I think this little guy is a seasoned veteran of our parking lot. I am pretty sure I saw him about 2 years ago scurrying across the sidewalk.

 

 

His name is Alvin and he's addicted to Armour-All.


Yes... here he is hard at work on his weekend project...

We used to say that to doodle bugs.   LOL   Do you know what those are?  They sure are ugly.

@GabeU

Love  your pictures.  I live in the country too.  We get the deer coming in the yard and watch them and I get a few ugly things too.  More than I cared to get.  Well I could not find the photo I had of the 81 inch rat snake  LOL  I killed 2 that size and 2 half that size in 2 days.  All together I have killed 6 copperheads in the chicken house at night.  Almost stepped on one.  Sheesh!

Re: It's not a great picture, but...

@bare65,  I didn't know any of that, so now I'll be extra careful -- It's quite amazing they store water in their bladder to use to stay hydrated -- we humans can't do that at all, that stuff just wants to come out!

 

"You have to be extremely careful though when moving a desert tortoise. Don't life it too high and always keep the tortoise level.

Believe it or not, tortoise actually store water in their bladder...thus the reason they can travel great distances without stopping for water....BUT, if you go picking up a tortoise suddenly and scare it, it will pee and lose all of that precious water it has stored for it's travels. That is almost certainly a death sentence if the tortoise cannot find a suitable water source nearby to replace the loss."
