Our Desert Tortoise has a lot of personality, he really does. He likes to wander and explore- which led to trouble. I had either left the side door to the garage open or not completely shut, somehow he got into the garage. My wife came home for lunch and ran over something in the garage. She backed up, got out to see what it was. She called me in a panic, saying "I killed our turtle!" His shell was cracked and there was a puddle of blood (which my daughter cleaned up). I rushed home and we took him to the local animal hospital. He stayed over night and is home now. I think he will be ok now as long as we take good care of him- we have to give him injections for 8 days (starting today 9/10) and keep him inside for awhile so that he doesn't get an infection. Seeing him after the accident I didn't think he was going to make it, but now I do.
