A tiny shelled reptile that lives in the desert.

A small (but not quite vermin) species of tortoise that appears in the desert. No particularly notable characteristics, but it will give you a shell if butchered, which may be useful for appeasing strange moods. Ironically, desert tortoises swim somewhat faster than they can move on land.
