Sex, Turtle Style



Amazing what you will find in Ft. Lauderdale. Here are two Desert Tortoises that I came across. The female Tortoise will lay eggs after being impregnated, but the humid Florida climate will prevent the eggs from hatching. Florida is home to many non-indigenous species, which have arrived by human activity, either deliberately or accidentally. Some introduced species are damaging the ecosystem such as the Boa Constrictor and Python, others have no negative effect such as these Tortoises.
