The humble Desert Tortoise may not be fast, but he's consistent! There's a business lesson to be learned there. The tortoise will live for up to 80 years in the sometimes brutal desert environment.
The jackrabbit gets more press, can leap as much as 10' in a single bound, and is much flashier. It's life expectancy in that same desert environment is five years or less.
The curved projections under the chin are called Gular Horns. Both male and female have them. They will be longer and more curved on the male desert tortoise.
