Gopherus polyphemus, 11 December 2022

Gopherus polyphemus, the Gopher tortoise;
Lake county, Florida (11 December 2022).

This super young Gopher tortoise was loitering around a bit too close to a pool, so it was gently taken to the other side of the fence where the sandy dunes and nearby cacti reside. Is there anything as precious as a tiny, baby Gopher tortoise?
