    Default Gopher Tortoise Countship

    I spend most of the day getting video clips of these two. Need to upload two more.

    And the tortoise finally give up and took a lunch break. So we have a courtship fail. This is the first time I have ever seen gopher tortoise courtship. I did catch them mating last year. I was not expecting one of the tortoise to just walk away.
