These tortoises survive extremes in desert temperatures by digging underground burrows where they spend 98% of their time.
Desert tortoises can survive a year without drinking water, and have a lifespan of 80 to 100 years.
Coyotes, bobcats, foxes and ravens prey upon the soft-shelled young, but only a mountain lion can crush an adult’s heavy shell.
Despite current conservation efforts, desert tortoise populations remain vulnerable to habitat loss, predation, and disease.
