Now here's a classic Scrub animal. It's Toni the Texas Tortoise! She eats grasses, cactus, and other Scrub plants, just like me! She loves hot weather, and she can go without water for a long time. Her hard shell gives her plenty of protection from predators, and she is one of the longest-living animals in the Scrub.
