lost tortoise found after 30 years web

Wow….talk about a super pet!

A family in Brazil got QUITE the surprise when a missing friend turned up after 30 years on the lam.

The Brazilian family, the Almeidas, renovated their home and Manuela, the family's red footed tortoise, went missing. Many thought she escaped and went to live in the forest nearby.

Three decades later, the patriarch of the family died and the children returned home to clean house.

And who was there guarding all of their father's belongings???? Manuela!

The family believes Manuela survived on strictly termites. Her vet says red footed tortoises can go extended periods without eating.

30 years??? Definitely not…but if there were termite breaks, she would have been fine.

Manuela nows lives with the Almeidas and she's probably VERY grateful for a new diet!

    This is pretty amazing, however it makes me sad that a tortoise can live 30yrs and dogs get cheated. However this is a really cool story. I'm glad she was found safe!
