Testudo Graeca Graeca - Fred

Fred is between 75 and 80 years of age and was probably a wild caught imported tortoise many years ago, however we know he would have been firstly taken from his wild home in / from Morocco to Greece where he lived with his owners until they moved to the UK and found him a new home in the UK some years later. Fred has remained at this home for the past 28 years. Read about Fred's recent health problems and remedies further on.
