Hi! My name is Andy.

I was brought into the shelter as a stray and then transferred to rescue to help me heal and find my forever home. My shell started to peel because I didn't have the right things that I needed, such as UVB, heat, diet, and supplements. As time goes on, with these things corrected, my shell will improve.

So a little bit about me; I'm a vegetarian and I love the outdoors. I am a great eater and I love to splore.

Though there is no way to really tell what age I am, based on my color and size I am probably within the 20 - 35 years range. My species can live more than 50 years if we have a lean, high-fiber diet and a low-stress environment with the right temps and light. Bringing me into your family is a lifelong commitment, for both of us!

I require an outdoor enclosure and possibly a safe place inside when the weather is bad. Don't worry, the rescue will provide you with all of the information that you will need to prepare for my arrival :)
