Oh, this is lovely indeed, but shouldn’t these things be in the sea? We don’t know where this elderly gentleman has got his from, but he has certainly become a familiar sight on the streets of Tsukishima, Tokyo, where they are regularly seen taking a stroll together. The gentle African spurred tortoise, who is sometimes spotted wearing a frilly pink pinafore, loyally follows its owner through the busy neighborhood even without leash or collar.
