Desert Tortoise
I am a desert tortoise
I can burrow into the ground
 I hide in my shell
I  can live in the hot desert
 I am a Desert Tortoise!

Desert Tortoises
I like them.
Ask me why.
Because they black and tan
Because they  are herbivores
Because they  live in the desert
Because they they can only live on land,
Because they release a horrible liquid when they are scared
Because they can burrow into the ground to stay nice and cool
Because they have small round heads
Because they are an endanged species
Because. That's why
I like Desert Tortoises
