These two large tortoises ambled about and were not as sluggish as one might expect. I dont know which species of tortoise this is because I forgot to photograph the sign.

This tortoise external link was only about a foot long but may grow to be three feet long and a couple of hundred pounds.

He seemed alert and happy and was savagely attacking his lawn.
