Meet Mr. Tortuga
Anyone who has happened to visit my house or randomly perhaps follow me on twitter (I often post photos and videos of him) might know that I have a somewhat unusual backyard pet, a quite large desert tortoise! He's actually lived in the backyard of the house since the 1960s which makes him over 50 years old, wow! For the first month living in the house he was pretty much MIA. We thought the landlord might have changed her mind and taken him with her but one afternoon we saw him! He seemed a little bit afraid of us at first and would completely freeze and turn into a little statue but now he is much friendlier and more active and will walk right up to me. Such a funny guy, I love having him as my backyard buddy!
I've taken kind of a stupid amount of pictures of him because I think he's really cool but yesterday was the first time we got a photo together :)
