While driving up my drive, I spotted a big turtle walking up it.
This guy was pretty large and seemed to have more tortoise characteristics than turtle.
When picked up, he wasn't afraid of me.
Look at those scaly legs!
I knew he had to be an exotic, and had probably escaped or been dumped.
I placed him in my dog wash room and made a few calls.
Come to find out, he's a she and is an African Sulcata tortoise.
She had escaped about 4 weeks ago from her owner
who lives down the road from me about a mile.
Squirtel is now reunited with her grateful owner and is safe at home.
