Did you know you can teach a tortoise to recall like a dog?
Nor did I until I spoke to Paula Stewart, owner of Jeff the Tortoise, who responds to his name just as a dog would and runs towards her when she calls him.
Not only that, Jeff has a wardrobe with 15 outfits in, including a dinosaur suit and minions outfit, a ladybird and an apple.
Originally from Greece, she tries to give him food he would have enjoyed in his native country, like cucumber which he loves, and he enjoys lambs lettuce, dandelions and raspberries.
He lives in a 9ft by 6ft hutch with a UV lamp – tortoises need 12 hours of sunlight or UV light every day – and Paula is working on a £1000 renovation of her garden to include a pen for him outside.
