What a face! (3 photos)


Regular visitors to the site have met Lucretia, Tucson's most photogenic desert tortoise. From time to time her humans send me news on her life and we can all enjoy the updates.

Her favorite foods in the spring are kale and red leaf lettuce - yum! Her humans told me that she still grazes throughout the yard eating grasses, lemon tree leaves, and other sprouts popping up.

And the bottom photo is Lady Lucretia enjoying her first soak of the season. She hung out in the water for a good 20 minutes for this good soak - ahhhh, that sounds wonderful!

  1. THANK YOU for these photos! I was actually just thinking about her the other day when I was out at the Desert Museum. I was checking into their adoption program. THANK YOU!
