I don't see the gopher tortoises very often... so when this one came to my back door, it seemed providential... and I went running for the camera.

The turtle seems to be interested in eating the soil... Minerals?

Kitty's interested too...

Real interested...

Video of the cats seemingly ignoring turtle... 
while the turtle is oblivious to the cats in turn.

I've never noticed a gopher tortoise eating dirt. Around here they like to dig their tunnels near clumps of Little Blue Stem which I have seen them eating.
