All Sorts of Wild Life
Notice the rocks set all in a line. You can't really see it well in the picture, but there is a short wire weave fence folded out and held in place along the ground to keep the endangered tortoises off the roadway. These short fences run for miles. They funnel the tortoises to culverts running under the road in various places.
Notice his eyes... how they glow yellow in flash pictures. Freaky, yes? And if I don't use flash, he just comes out looking like a black blob.
Now that Bingo has had a chance to become adjusted to living with Jasper, who is quite a cranky fellow, and us, he has developed some routines and seems quite content.
He's much less flighty than at first and has stopped most of his little dog yapping, thank heavens. He loves to play and carries his toys all over. At bed time, he often brings them all into our bed so he can have his people, his cat and all his toys together. He is very excited about life and everything in it. He's good for us, keeps us going.
