LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Mojave Max isn't out yet but Carson the Tortoise is.

Northern Nevada's version of Max officially emerged from brumation on Tuesday.

Max emerged on April 1 last year. Officials at the Springs Preserve say he likely hit the snooze button on his spring alarm clock this year.

The emergence of both tortoises signals the beginning of spring.
