Day #43 - Desert tortoise

A friend of mine participates in a program that places desert tortoises with families willing to foster them. These are animals that have been raised in captivity, or injured, or otherwise unable to fend for themselves in the wild. Every couple of days, they get some leafy greens in addition to the grass and other plants the grow in their enclosures. This one is munching on a hunk of kale.
