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.
