@Sorrelpelt The Matthite: I have a pet tortoise. He’s a desert tortoise and he’s a good pet, very cute! I give him kale and lettuce by placing it in front of him and he just eats it. He’s pretty small, compared to Buckshot. We’ve had him since he was a baby, for about 2, 3 years so far?

@Casual Claire: I have a pet turtle. He was treating terribly by someone we know so my fam took it. He is amazing 😉

@David Morel: You’re wrong cayote! I’m from from Seychelles where we have hundreds of these tortoise and they not only swim to different locations, they do so really well! I recommend go and see it for yourself one day! We have many wildlife there!
