California desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii). Near Baker, Calfornia.
We helped this precious bb across the road, although this must be done VERY CAREFULLY, without stressing out the turtle so much that he or she will urinate (which is a very common stress reaction for turtles). For a desert species to lose all his/her water could mean dehydration and death. So, if you find one of these in the wild, please be very careful about not stressing out the animal. <3
