Shark, the Pet of the Day
Name: Shark
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: African Spur Tortoise
Home: League City, Texas, USA
   My name is Shark. I love to play with my best friend Chase and he takes good care of me. I am able to run and burrow quite well. I get excited just before it rains, running around. I can be lazy when it's very hot or very cold but in Texas it's very hot most of the time. I love all vegetables and fruits. I prefer leaves of morning-glory (Ipomaea). I don't have to eat every day. My best friend Chase does think I look very cool. Sometimes I go outside to play. I love that. I'm very easy to take care of. Sometimes I get to sleep in the bed with Chase. I am very heavy. I weigh 40 pounds and 27 inches long.

    Chase here, Shark likes to play tug of war. He is very sweet. Sometimes he rubs his head on me when he wants attention. He's jealous in his own way. One time he got into my M&Ms and got sick. I took him to the vet and the vet said he just had a upset tummy. He's better now and back to his normal self.
