happy sunday!

visiting via camera critters.

Boom & Gary

Too bad about them; we support the endangered species!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.


I think there is enough development myself---I'd much rather see tortoise than CONDOS..grrr


How can politicians not be environamental friendly these days?! Ok, I know the answer of course... Sad news for the poor tortoises, they are such cute animals.


So sad and maddening about Florida's lawmakers. I guess they'll only be happy when the state is covered in concrete. This post reminds me of a time a couple of years ago when we were traveling in Arkansas and southern Missouri. We saw lots of armadillos on the side of the road. It was strange because prior to this we only saw them in Texas and Oklahoma. People said it was a sign that global warming had allowed the armadillos' habitat to move further north. I don't know if that's true but it was interesting.


That's one rugged looking tortoise, Sallie, and don't get me started on politicians... :-D ...but it's the sign that gets my attention! Some years ago I thought of starting a website where people could submit these yellow warning signs... I've seen some unique ones! And this one would fit right in... (The road to hell... hahaha...)


I like tortoises ! We have tortoises in France, but smaller ones. They live in south and it is forbidden to take or buy them.
In Alasace, where I live for one week yet, they are little tunnel under some roads to let the toads and frogs go from one side of the road to the other, during Spring. Sometimes, when there is no tunnel, people gathered, put the animals in a bucket and carry them. They NEVER eat them !


Love this sign. This little guy have the right to live too they have purpose in this life ^_^

What a great sign. Have never seen one. I agree with Ewok...I would love to see gophers and tortoises crossing the road. I would certainly STOP!

Gemma @ Greyscale

I have never heard of these tortoises! Such cute little characters!

EG Wow

OH! Too bad about your governor! I'm sure there are many places in Florida that need to be protected!


I would love to see gophers and tortoise xing :)


And I guess it isn't helped that these guys take 15 years to mature before mating! I had never heard of them before.
