    Does a tortoise recognize its owner?

    I'm not sure with my tortoise - he recognises my voice, but not me - if that makes sense. I feel for me atm it seems to be a correlation with food, as whenever I speak to anyone/anything in the room, he wanders up to the food slab. Still intelligent tho :D
