It was fast work in the world of turtles. One day, Gloria, along with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, were settling into their new home. The next morning, the quartet of desert tortoises had disappeared. Officials at the county-run San Dimas Canyon Park and Nature Center said Wednesday they suspect foul play, and have filed a missing turtles report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The reptiles, valued at $1,000 each, are on state and federal endangered species lists.

Missing: two poisonous 4-foot-long Pacific rattlesnakes, last seen sleeping peacefully in their terrarium at the San Dimas Canyon Park Nature Center. Sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning, the critters were rudely awakened by vandals who broke into the snake house, pried open the display case and made off with the terrarium. Nothing else was taken, authorities said. It was the latest in a rash of nature center thefts involving endangered--and in some case dangerous--animals.

Three San Gabriel Valley nature centers that provide wilderness outings for thousands of school children each year probably would face closure under a budget-balancing proposal before the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. By eliminating 15 staff positions in the county's Parks and Recreation Department, the plan calls for essentially shutting down eight nature parks and 10 other protected natural areas countywide.
