Desert Tortoise Release

Meandering slowly through the desert, 36 endangered desert tortoises with very special shells found a new home just south of Las Vegas on Wednesday. Each tortoise carries on its back a VHS radio transmitter the size of a small stack of quarters that will allow San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research scientists to gather data about desert tortoise movement and habitat choices.
