Our New Friend

We have adopted a Gopher Tortoise. Someone dropped him off at the vet school and he is now residing at our place. His shell was painted orange, probably by some stupid frat boy football fan. At the moment we don't know if we will keep him or release him, but either way it will probably be spring before we can release him. He is rather ill and is getting anti-biotics until he gets better, and the orange shell would make him visible to predators. We have yet to name him, but I like "Locha" which is Creek for turtle and Mary likes Richard. More coming later on his condition.
