Bessie the Horsfield Tortoise, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bessie
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Horsfield Tortoise
Home: Coventry, West Midlands, England, UK
   This is Bessie, she is my female Horsfield Tortoise. She is now about nine years old. Bessie is very different as she has one fully functioning eye where as her other eye is completely shut due to some problems before she came to me.

     hen Bessie was given the all clear to come to me, I had noticed her coloration was very different than your average Horsfield tortoise. Bessie is very much darker than usual and has such an amazing character and individual personality to her. She has a thing for trying to eat anything that is in her path which at times is a right scare! Bessie, considering she looks so sweet, is far from that - she is very over-protective with food which means she snaps at anyone and anything that even tempts go near "her" food. Bessie is one of a kind and although a shell-scare at times! She is one of my most loved animals. She is a much loved part of the family.
