Photo: A sick desert tortoise
As can be seen in this photo, the tortoise is swollen in the shoulders and chin. The vet said that the tortoise has a parasite and gave him some medicine.
My secretary will have to bring her other desert tortoise into the vet for examination and possible treatment because if it has parasites it could give them right back to this tortoise.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing photos from the Galapagos Islands, which makes this photo of a tortoise seem appropriate.
What is not appropriate is to post this tortoise photo today, which is Dave's and my anniversary. This tortoise does not remind me of Dave. Not even when I ask him to do some chores around the house.
