YAY! At 1:45 pm yesterday @mojavemax emerged from his burrow! So happy to see your face max! Spring is near! 

From the Clark County, NV press release (Read it all here!):

Mojave Max is a live desert tortoise who calls Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area his home. Like other Southern Nevada reptiles, he enters a burrow to brumate (the reptilian form of hibernation) every winter and emerges every spring. Mojave Max’s emergence marks the beginning of spring-like weather in Southern Nevada.  Warmer temperatures, longer daylight hours and an internal clock are factors known to contribute to his emergence every year.
