Willy the tortoise made a break for freedom well, break may be too strong a word. It was more like a slow crawl. But after a month on the lam, the 40-pound tortoise with a 2-foot-wide, gold-colored shell is back in the wading pool at his owner's home.
The included picture reveals that, yep, it's another leopard tortoise, just like Om, only full-grown. That's how big he's going to get some day folks, and at the rate he's growing it won't be that far off. Which is just as well, because Om will most likely be the family dog.
