Given Japan already has a Godzilla hotel and a Hello Kitty Brothel, we can’t say it is that surprising that they also have residents who take a stroll though the streets with their pet tortoise.
While in the UK that might be considered a tad strange, this dude seems to have no issues whatsoever with his pet tortoise, who seems to be moving at just the right speed to keep up with his owner, even without a lead.
The ‘pet’ is an African spurred tortoise and is pretty large, so we dread to think where it actually sleeps at night and how much it costs to put him in the costumes his owner seems to love so much!
It might raise some eyebrows, but if we’re being honest, the tortoise is far more interesting than your average dog!
I would have one any day.
