Walking partners: A man and his tortoise

A pet tortoise that accompanies its master on walks has become a hot topic in Shanghai, east China.

The animal’s master, surnamed Yang, treats the tortoise with great care, even dressing its back legs in a pair of socks. “I only take it for walk during hot seasons because of its habitus. If I take it out when it’s cold, the tortoise may get ill. We treasure the pet like our child,” he said. The seven-year-old male tortoise is about 40 centimeters in length, 25 centimeters in width and weighs 15 kilograms.
