Description: A 10-year-old African Spurred Tortoise (Geochelone sulcata) named Herman reignited my fascination with turtles, tortoises and other hard-shelled reptiles when I met him back in the winter of 2010. At 37 pounds, he is expected to live 120-150 years and reach at least 150 pounds by the time he's 30 years old. There's something about these long-living gentle creatures that stirs the imagination.
