A group of tortoises native to Florida have found themselves being unceremoniously dumped on - by new construction.
The little gopher tortoises are very skilled diggers, making burrows that are roughly seven feet deep and 15 feet long. But while their underground homes may protect the gopher tortoises from predators, the burrows can't protect against the tortoises' greatest threat: loss of habitat.
Over 100,000 gopher tortoises have been killed in the past 20 years due to development on top of their homes, even though they are considered to be a threatened species protected by the state of Florida.
Luckily, conservation program "Saving Florida's Gopher Tortoises" (SFGT) has teamed up with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to relocate gopher tortoises whose habitats are threatened by imminent construction or development.
Some of the tortoises, are a little bit camera shy, understandably.
