A gopher tortoise decided to make my backyard home. It just didn't take my dogs into consideration. Sigh
Now I have 2 tunnels, one in each of my fenced yards.
A few days ago I saved it from my great dane who was holding it like a ball.
Now I found the little one right by the hole. I missed a good shot since I didnt have my phone with me, but you can see the fresh hole

He knows how you treat animals and just wanted to share your love. Pretty sure he didn't anticipate a gargantuan taste everything in sight occupant, or his little (comparatively) sister.

Thank you my friend.
This is the last straw for one big decision I made today. Those two canines won't be staying free on either yard anymore (at least for long period of time) . It will solve a lot of issues for me and prevent the little gopher to be hurt by them. - at least I can do my part. I wish we could help them more.

Consider yourself lucky as all hell to have these endangered animals breeding on your property!!
How lucky you are.
I remember them being plentiful in my youth, as we're Indigo Snakes. Now both are rare in the wild.
You must be doing something right

Thank you. I'm gonna leave the little one alone. I just need to figure out a way to prevent the dogs from disturbing it
