ALHAMBRA, Calif. (AP) — A giant tortoise found ambling down a street in suburban Los Angeles has been reunited with its owners.

Great news for this big guy! I was just about to post the story of the ‘giant tortoise found wandering the streets of LA’ when I read that his humans had been found. I know you wanna be a shellebrity but don’t forget your roots big guy!

We torties know how to use our surroundings to their fullest. Tools for camouflage? surrounding yourself with snacks? you don’t have to choose!

Hey waffles! Im worried about my Thomas. He wouldn’t open his eyes and refuse to eat for days. Im worried. ):

Oh no! This is not good at all! It’s time to take Thomas to the vet. Look to see if there is a vet in your area who works with reptiles since not all vets are trained in exotics. The chances are that Thomas may be sick with hatchling failure syndrome. Here’s some more information on it:

He may also have a respratory infection. Either way, the sooner you can take him in to a vet, the better. Good luck.
