That would be so ****ing creepy to discover a pet you thought was lost/dead for the past 30 years to be alive... I guarantee you that guy who died was reincarnated as that tortoise....




jk, only delusional idiots believe in reincarnation..

Damn what a G. I hope it's not blind. That fool should be fed only the finest strawberries, papayas, lettuce, and meal worm for the rest of it's life. And it should get a little pond too.

Surprised dude didn't turn into a zombie.

Apparently they possess a hibernation-type of phase. That probably helped a lot. But they sound like pretty cool pets... at a foot long, a little big for most terreriums, tho.

Turtle in store room for 30 years vs. Russian family in Siberian wilderness for 40 years... tough one.
