Sulcata tortoise

The African spurred tortoise, also called the Sulcata tortoise, is the third-largest species in the world, able to grow more than 80 centimetres and weigh over 100 kilograms.

They are very strong animals and will charge at likely and unlikely things. Adult males will ram into the other guys of the same species, attempting to flip them over, and have been known to attack fences and walls – successfully!

Kind of like crows going for shiny objects, Sulcatas are attracted by brightly coloured items and will do whatever necessary to acquire what their hearts desire, even if it means breaking down a wall.
