We found a small tortoise in our side yard this morning. He's about the size of a softball. I just left it with the vet. The wildlife rescue center will take custody to determine if he's native to our area.
I texted the photo to Krista who, even though we didn't keep him, immediately named him SPEEDY. The rescue center won't release it to the wild and it's likely that Speedy will relocate to a tortoise rescue center. OR - Dr. B at the vet clinic will be allowed to keep him in his very large terrarium. I'm cheering for TLC from Dr. B.
