Caption

Juvenile gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus). This tortoise lives in the south-eastern USA. It spends most of its time foraging for grasses, herbs, leaves and occasionally fruits and berries. In the summer it lives in sandy areas, retreating at night into a burrow which it digs itself. In the winter it hibernates in pine forests. Photographed in Ocala National Forest, Florida.
