Biscuit is a Gopher Tortoise. Gopher Tortoises are known as ‘keystone species’ and their burrows provide habitat for over 300 different animals! Biscuit came to us in 2019 after being attacked by a dog. Due to this injury, Biscuit’s right hind leg is partially paralyzed. Biscuit is too small and vulnerable to go back to the wild with the current injury now, but only time will tell whether Biscuit will one day return to the wild!
Fun Fact: Gopher Tortoises can live to be over 70 years old!
