Miss Jennie is a female Sulcata tortoise, she arrived at the sanctuary on 10/10/2015. She was born on February 2, 2012. She spent all her life with a loving family but because she got heavier and heavier, her owner was unable to lift her up to keep her out of trouble, she was donated to us to give her a great home outdoors. Sulcata's are very small when born but are in fact the third largest tortoise in the world and can weigh up to 150 - 200 pounds live till about 150 years old. Once they grow large, they are very difficult to keep indoors or even outdoors as they dig large caves underground.
