ANGULATE TORTOISE

I was driving out of town yesterday when an Angulate Tortoise walking next to the road caught my eye.

It felt akin to seeing another dog that mimics the look of your own pet in a place where this is impossible. Of course, I am referring to Bryan ā€“ the Angulate Tortoise that has made our garden his home for the past couple of years. I saw him the other day, chomping at the weeds on our lawn ā€“ he is looking healthy and is clearly growing, so we should measure and weigh him before summer ends.

This one has an undamaged carapace and was walking surprisingly quickly to get out of the sun beating overhead.

    • It is. We leave the tortoise to its own devices, having established there is plenty of food for him. I always make sure there is water available though. He appears from time to time and then disappears for so long that we think he must have continued his journey. Our neighbours have sometimes seen him in their garden too, but he has always returned of his own accord in his own time.
