Tortoise’s birthday celebrated

March 2, 2014
The Maui News
Maui Humane Society animal care attendant Jon Morgan carries Freddie the African Salcata land tortoise to the scale during his 11th birthday celebration at the Puunene animal shelter. Freddie weighed in at 44.2 pounds, up from last year’s 36.4 pounds. The species can live as long as 150 years and grow to weigh more than 200 pounds. There was a contest to guess Freddie’s weight, as well as face painting, a scavenger hunt, specials on pet adoptions and a birthday cake.
