LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Spring has sprung here in Southern Nevada because Mojave Max made his debut!

Southern Nevada’s desert tortoise officially emerged from his burrow at the Springs Preserve at 12:21 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

The preserve held a contest for local students to predict when Max would emerge. The preserve said they are still tabulating the results.
