Meet Ciyalana the 11-year-old, 20 pound, Sulcata tortoise. He’s had a rough go of things the first few years of his life.  Like far too many sulcata tortoises, he was found abandoned in an NYC park, likely a victim of unprepared and uncommitted humans. Then just as things were looking up,  some kids broke into his new forever home at the Lower East Side Ecology Center in Manhattan. They threw a brick at his shell causing a large crack, requiring several surgeries and lots of epoxy before he was finally on the mend.  

When plans for a renovation of the center drew near, the folks at the Lower East Side Ecology Center decided he needed to wait the year out where he would have lots of love, space to roam, and NOMS A PLENTY! So Ciyalana found his way to the Woodstock farm sanctuary where he was greeted with a human parade and LOTS of treats. Looks like only the best days are ahead for Ciyalana! Nom on, shell friend! Nom on!
