Unfortunately this is a story we hear all too often and that is why we are against tortoises being sold in pet shops or online shops. I know it is hard to walk away and we get many people say to us " I had to buy one as i felt sorry for it". The sad thing is when you do this you only make a space for another poor bugger.
