History:  Bobbie is a male African Spur tortoise. He was bought as a pet and left at our front gates probably because the owners could no longer take care of him. This is such a problem with owners that have been hit hard by the economy. Bobbie, does know his name and is about 35 pounds right now, but will get to 100 pounds when heís fully grown. He was born in 2000. He loves corn on the cob! Itís amazing to watch him eat it, just like a human! A house with a heating lamp and hay will be provided for him during the winter months. They usually canít take temps under 60 degrees. If youíve never seen a personality in a tortoise before, you need to come to check him out!
