This visitor station has a mascot. Can you guess? Mister Bob is a 110 year old Turtle as of 2008. He has been cared for in a natural habit at the station for the last eight years and being spoiled rotten by all who adore him. They have ensured he is protected and they have provided him with some really nice digs:-)

We had recently visited to get a soda and use the restrooms. While getting a soda I happened to look down and there he was. He does respond to your voice. As I talked to him, he climbed over rocks to get to me and stuck his head out and up to me. He liked under his chin to be scratched softly. He is adorable.

Desert tortoises hibernate 9 months out of the year. So Mr. Bob was getting ready to hibernate. So they were feeding him well.
