I've had someone contact me this morning about a tortoise that has been found, and has asked me to post the details on the forum.

Here are the details. :)

 Anyway, on Friday I found a tortoise wandering across a road. It is now
with the RSPCA. It was found on Ford Lane, near Gaston Lane, between
Odiham and South Warnborough, Hampshire. The owner can contact the RSPCA
on 0300 1234999, quoting 2166-12-8. They can then describe the creature
including the species to prove ownership. Could you please post this in
a general forum? I would appreciate knowing if the owner claims it.

Thank you.

Hope it finds its home. If the RSPCA know the species that will be a first. They usually don't have a clue lol. I will never forget the tortoise they drowned because they insisted it was a terrapin :(

Yes I remember hearing about that, and hopefully they know the species at least they've not give that information out like some do and then anyone can claim it's theirs. :wink:
