   |              DESERT TORTOISE                 |
   |      These long-lived reptiles are a         |
   |      threatened species protected by         |
   |      law.  Many factors have been            |
   |      responsible for declines in tortoise    |
   |      population, such as raven predation,    |
   |      habitat loss, and disease.              |
   |                                              |
   |             Pick up your trash.              |
   | Trash attracts ravens that prey on tortoise! |

   | Desert Tortoise                              |
   | length:  9 to 15 inches                      |
   | height:  4 to 6 inches                       |
   | weight:  8 to 15 lbs                         |

   the numbers are:  9  15  4  6  8  15

   the math is:  (15 * 8) / 6 - sqrt(4) - sqrt(9) = 15

   more math:  15 / (15 / (4 * 6 / 8)) = sqrt(9)

   more math:  ((15 + 15) / (4 + 6))^cuberoot(8) = 9
