Tommy the Tortoise | Abbey Vets Chaddesden Derby

This is Tommy enjoying the sunshine! ☀️

Did you know a tortoise’s shell is made up of 60 different bones all connected to each other?

Tortoise’s have extremely strong mouths but no teeth instead they have horny type beaks

Tortoise’s can live a very long time, the average age ranges from 90yrs to 150yrs

They hibernate in the winter time and before they do, they starve themselves so their stomachs are empty ready for hibernation
