LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Mojave Max has emerged from his burrow! 

The famous Southern Nevada tortoise officially emerged on Friday at 11:11 a.m. 

The earliest he has ever emerged was on Feb. 14, 2005, at 11:55 a.m. The latest he has ever emerged was April 17, 2012, at 12:41 p.m. 

Mojave Max calls the Las Vegas Springs Preserve his home.

His emergence marks the beginning of spring-like weather in Southern Nevada. Warmer temperatures, longer daylight hours and his own internal clock are factors that contribute to his emergence.
