Day 8 of countdown to Florida Gopher Tortoise Day
We bring to you an amphibian you wouldn’t expect to find in a sandy #gophertortoise burrow. Aptly named the Gopher frog (Lithobates capito). Thanks to the gopher tortoises burrow staying a constant temperature and humidity these two hang out....practicing proper social distancing that is. Head to the link in our profile or in the comments to learn more about frogs, burrows and fire 🔥!!! 📸: Elizabeth A.
