During the hottest parts of the day, a sulcata tortoise is known to burrow four meters into the ground in search for cool areas with higher moisture levels.
While sulcata tortoises are predominantly herbivores, they also feed on old bones as a calcium supplement to strengthen their shell.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
