Gopher Tortoise Dens
These dens are two of four spotted while checking the progress of young planted and volunteer longleaf trees. We saw the big guy (or gal) from earlier pictures — I think we’ll call her Polly — aggressively grazing two days ago. She stuck that big neck out and almost pulled the browse up by the roots. She eats rapidly and does not chew twenty-eight times before she swallows!
