Description

This little guy might possibly be a Sonoran Desert Tortoise. Cycling along the road, heading back to my truck, I saw this little one marching across the road. From a distance I thought it was a tarantula, it was so small. It was about 2.5 inches lengthwise across the shell, although I couldn't find my ruler. I moved him out of the road, in the direction he was moving. He was not marked. Fortuitously, as I was taking photos, a Yellow-billed cuckoo called from west of me, from the mesquite!

Description from Wikipedia

Tortoises (/ˈtɔːr.təs.ɪz/, Testudinidae) are a family of land-dwelling reptiles in the order Testudines. Like other turtles, tortoises are shielded from predators by a shell. The top part of the shell is the carapace, the underside is the plastron, and the two are connected by the bridge. The tortoise endoskeleton has the adaptation of having an external shell fused to the ribcage. Tortoises can vary in size from a few centimeters to two meters. They are usually...
