Who would have thought one of America's founding badasses was an animal lover!?
In a recent interview, Clint Eastwood reveals how many animals he has roaming around his Spanish-style home,
We have two tortoises, we have a pig, we have five chickens, we've got a guinea pig, a chinchilla, and two rats, and um, let's see, what else? Five birds …yeah, I'd say we're animal people
The tortoise is 80lbs! Holy cow! That's not a small pet!
The best part? It doesn't even have a tank!
He just kind of wanders the courtyard, and has his own house out there, like a doghouse. He takes up a little space. But he's a character, you know? He loves to hang with you. They don't do much, but they love to come over if you're sitting in the yard and sit next to you. He's got a little social side of him.
His exterior may seem rough, but he's a bog ol' softy!
It's amazing how many pets he has! It's great that he's so welcoming to all the company too!
We salute you Clint! For your badassdom and animal friendly lifestyle!
