    That's a brave move, especially with the current health crisis. But I admire nonetheless and hope all 113 pull through. Within an hour, they seem to have raised the needed money as all torts have been named

    Or more quickly, tie a piece of lettuce to a stick and stick the stick
    on the tortoise, and you’ve got yourself the tortoise version of greyhound racing.
