The Desert Tortoise by James W. Cornett
The desert tortoise is one of the best-known animals in the Southwest. At one time the desert tortoise was common throughout most of the Mojave and Sonoran desert regions.
Fortunately, the desert tortoise's official listing and protection by both state and federal governments have increased prospects for their survival.
This publication provides answers to frequent questions about this most fascinating and celebrated animal. The focus is on tortoises in their natural habitat.
