Tortoise Escapes the Brutal Arizona Heat With a Thorough Head Soak in an Automatic Lawn Sprinkler

A very clever tortoise named Tortie, who lives in Chandler, Arizona with his photographer human Cassell Clark Archinuk momentarily escaped the brutal heat of an Arizona summer with a refreshing thorough head soak in the automatic sprinklers on the lawn. On this day, June 12, 2018, the area temperature rose to a roasting 110°.

This is my tortoise Tortie who has an obsession with sprinklers. It’s one way to beat the heat!
