HOUSTON – A local woman was given a giant tortoise as a household pet and has been turning heads ever since.

Turbo is a 13-year-old giant tortoise and weighs 110 pounds.

I got him as a Christmas gift from an ex boyfriend,” said Brenda Hereeia.

People were doing a double take after seeing her walk her tortoise through Memorial Park just like a household pet.

“He’s very friendly,” Hereeia said.
