Desert Tortoise

Our desert tortoise, Dandelion, was taken from the wild in 1962 to be a pet and has been at Lindsay since 1997.  Captive tortoises cannot be released back into the wild because they may carry disease that could harm the wild population.

Now 55 years old, Dandelion could live to see 100! Help make her years at Lindsay even better by adopting Dandelion today!

Adopt Our Desert Tortoise!

Lindsay Wildlife Experience’s Adopt an Animal program lets you symbolically adopt your favorite species and at the same time support our important work of connecting people with wildlife to inspire respect and responsibility for the world we share.
