Desert Tortoise Monitoring The desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) is primarily found within the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts of southern California, southern Nevada, and southwestern Utah.

Tortoises are impacted by habitat loss, disease, predation, on- and off-road vehicle traffic, and livestock grazing. Mojave Desert Tortoises (G. agassizii) inhabit the most seasonal and least productive environment; they produce up to three clutches per year and the greatest, size-specific annual fecundity among Gopherus species (Averill-Murray et al.

Woodbury & Hardy () report. The efficacy of intraosseous catheterization has not been described previously in the desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii). The goal of this study was to describe and compare the efficacy of four intraosseous catheter sites (humerus, femur, plastocarapacial junction [bridge], and gular region of the plastron) to jugular catheterization.

The gopher tortoise is grouped with land tortoises that originated 60 million years ago, in North America. A genetic study has shown that their closest relatives are in the Asian genus Manouria.
