80-Pound Tortoise Escapes His Florida Home

Zulu broke free from his Miramar, Florida, home this week, but was so slow moving that he didn’t get very far. Neighbors called local police when they saw the giant, 80-pound tortoise lumbering down the street. Police posted photos of the tortoise on social media in an effort to find his owners, and it worked. Four hours later, Zulu’s owner came to get him. This wasn’t the first time the curious animal left home. “When he gets his mind going and he wants to leave, he just goes,” said owner Mary Schul. She plans to get him a tag so she can find him quickly if he wanders off again. — Watch it from the AP via Science Daily
