Red Alert: Tortoise in Danger!
One time my family and I were going down the road when we saw a shape in front of us as we approached it we noticed it was a gopher tortoise! My dad stopped the car and we all went out to make sure it was one. It was! My dad and I carried it to the woods and let it go. I thought being able to see one that close was cool because there are so many interesting things about these animals for example; they can grow to 16 inches long. So this one wasn't exactly "record size" he was still awesome to see! Hopefully he didn't walk back across the road considering we took him to the side he was going to! :)
