Mojave Maxine has emerged!
Mojave Maxine, the desert tortoise at The Living Desert, emerged from brumation (reptilian hibernation) at 12:06pm on Tuesday, February 7th 2017. Spring is here!
A big thank you to everyone who entered our Mojave Maxine Emergence Contest; we had over 1400 entries! The contest is now closed, and we will be contacting the winning students in the nine southern California counties through their teachers in the coming weeks.
But wait – don’t go yet! Even though Maxine has emerged and the contest is now over for this season, there is still more excitement to come! Maxine will be celebrating her 40th birthday this April, and The Living Desert will be helping her celebrate – so tuned for more information on Maxine’s birthday party!
Thanks, and remember to enter the Mojave Maxine Emergence Contest again next year!
