Actually, that's not Patch however, he is about that large...the little guy on the big guy's head. He is a rescued Desert Tortoise out of Nevada. A friend of mine knows someone in Vegas and she sent her some refugees last week while I was out of town visiting Mum.
She saved this little guy for me as she knows I have been patiently waiting my turn to help one of these buggers out. His name is Patch because he was born with a hole in his shell on the bottom. The vet patched him up, gave him a clean bill of health, and he know resides with us. He is on the move and eats like a pig. He is wonderful. I'll post some actual pictures when I download them. Not a big task, I know, but I haven't gotten around to doing it. Heavy weekend with Pride and all. But he is tres cool!
