A tribute.....turtle

Recommended Posts

....to a fallen tortoise. My nephew is 10 and last Christmas we gave him a tortoise for a gift. We figured it would be a hearty animal that could withstand a child. We were told the critter would live over a 100 years if cared for properly. Unfortunately my nephew's tortoise, whom is named Joe, passed last week after only a year with him. So, I felt bad for the little guy and made him this. Needless to say his spirits were lifted. Hope you enjoy!
