Gus (red-footed tortoise), Kermit (tree frog) and Spike (crested gecko) take over Somerville!!
Gus has been with Curious Creatures since we began in 1987. He is believed to be in his 80's, and he is a Red Footed tortoise, a species of tortoise found in Northern South America. Based on his smooth shell, and size, we think he may have originally been taken from the wild. These tortoises typically grow to be 12 inches as adults, but can reach over 16 inches, making them a medium sized tortoise. They have brightly colored scales that range from pale yellow to dark red, and the differences in color are noticed in different regions. They are related to the yellow-footed tortoise from the Amazon Basin. Their natural habitat ranges from the Savannah to forest edges around the Amazon Basin.
They're common as pets, which has caused them to be vulnerable to extinction in the wild.
