||25 years old|
my pet is a African tortoise and in the wild they live in the Sahara
desert there, and his name is Hugo. We live in Bruchköbel, Germany,
though. Hugo is 25 years old and weighs 85 kilograms (about 187
pounds). Hugo can live to be 150 years old and can weigh about 100
kilograms. He lives with our other tortoise in a big greenhouse. Hugo
likes when I and my father feed him. He loves to eat hay, pumpkin and
fresh grass. Sometimes he gets a carrot. He likes the sun, so Hugo and
the other tortoise are outside when it's warm and sunny, in our big, big
Tortoise are beautiful and interesting animals for my family. We all
love them very much. Unfortunately in the wild they are in danger of
dying out, although they lived for ages on our earth since the dinosaur
era for 200 million years. That is why Hugo is special to me.
