I'm very happy that they found a good place for these tortoises! I'm actually a hop skip away from the zoo. I plan on going and visiting and I'll definitely post some pictures. But there's no way that they can possibly how was 1000 tortoises! I wouldn't be surprised if people in this area of the country try to adopt them out?
If the weather is nice this up coming Tuesday, I will be going to the Detroit Zoo with a client I work with. I'm hoping I can talk to someone and ask about those turtles and tortoises (just curious). I'm assuming many of them didn't make it due to being shoved in a boot and in such poor conditions being baby tortoises...people make me SICK!!
