While researching various aspects of Sonoran Desert Tortoise caregiving, I came across this tidbit. It help clears some things up somewhat. In some cases it may change how we care for "Desert" Tortoises, depending on which species, Mohave (G. agassizii) or Sonoran (G. morafkai), Desert Tortoise we have. Check out this link for a good starting point if interested:

Interesting. I don't have this species, but still interesting.
Thanks for posting.

Is a fun read...there are more current ones that further detail the the two..as well as how they have cross bred into hybrids and as such the forced captive care is remarkably similar. ?

Another Debbie Downer reply. It was general info for those who do or do not have this type of DT.

Claims stated of so called hybrids are not backed up by any articles in your reply. Why am I not surprised,

How lame
