Giant Tortoises Debut at Turtle Back Zoo

By Desiree Taylor

After a 20-year absence giant tortoises have returned to the Turtle Back Zoo.   Andy, Norman andPatches are the newest and possibly the oldest residents at the zoo.  Andy is 52-years old, weighs more than 500 pounds and is expected to double his weight.  An exhibit will be built specifically to accommodate the growing tortoises.
