Special thanks to Sheila Gopala for sending us this story.
Goliath, a 70-kilogram tortoise, was found lumbering through the streets of Tracy, California last week.
He had apparently escaped from his home through an open gate, according to a report on News10.net.
Goliath, an African Sulcata tortoise, was seen by a passerby who called Animal Control.
He has belonged to the Hay family for 20 years. They breathed a sigh of relief when they found out where he was.
The African Sulcata tortoise is one of the largest tortoises in the world.
to lumber: to walk slowly and heavily.
