LAS VEGAS — Mojave Max, the famous southern Nevada desert tortoise, emerged on Wednesday at 2:17 p.m. It's the second-latest emergence, according to Clark County.
Max lives in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Like other reptiles in our area, he enters a burrow ever winter and emerges every spring.
The latest he's ever come out of hiding was April 17 in 2012. The earliest he arrived was Feb. 14 in 2005.
