Rocky comes to Class 1!

On Friday 13th July class 1 were able to meet Rocky, the spur- thighed tortoise.  At only 2 years old he is expected to live to around the age of 80.  He eats vegetables.  We were all surprised at how spikey his claws were and how wrinkly his skin is for one so young. 

He hibernates through winter.  Class 1 were very grateful to Milie and her family for bringing in Rocky.  If you want to read more about spur-thighed tortoise click here.
