Gopher Tortoise Photo Album

 

Welcome to the TGO Nature Center’s Gopher Tortoise Photo Album.  We hope the photographs below will help you identify this special tortoise. They are often found here at The Great Outdoors. Click on a photo to get a closer look.

Cindy Konrad sent in this video on March 4, 2016.  Click on the link to watch a Gopher Tortoise enjoying his “leafy meal”.

The photos below were taken by Jim Dick. Does it look like a little “attitude” going on?

The baby Gopher Tortoises in the three photos below were taken by Pat Ellwanger in December 2015.  These cute little guys (or gals) were by the cut-off for the library here at The Great Outdoors.  The third photo has Pat’s husband, Rick’s, hand in the photo to show the baby tortoise’s size.

Pat Ellwanger also took the photos below a few days later after the photos she took above.  She said this tortoise was north of the library path.  The photo may be courtesy of Pat Ellwanger but the model’s hand is courtesy of Rick Ellwanger!
