    Lost tortoise in Riverside, California. I don’t his species. I’ve had him since I was 3. He’s been a beloved pet in my family for over 50 years. We are so heartbroken and inconsolable. I’ve checked all the online resources for shelters... Pet Harbor, Craigslist, PawBoost, Nextdoor and we posted signs all over the neighborhood and parks. Visited a couple of shelters in the area but no sign of him. He is registered in California. We’re so so heartbroken. He is a medium sized tort. He does hibernate in the winter months.

    FYI, Lori, your tortoise is a desert tortoise, Gopherus agassizii.

    Thank you for clarifying. I knew he was a ‘desert’ tortoise; I just had no clue about his specific species. I’m utterly in love with everyone’s pictures of their pet tortoises. I had no idea how popular they are. It’s reassuring to know that there are rescue groups that love, feed, shelter and really care for these unique creatures.
