Aged 15 and 68kg, he ended his daring adventure in a construction plot where he was found and promptly returned to his family

It was in Ashland City, Tennessee, that Solomon, the African spurred tortoise, embarked on a slow but decided escape that lasted a total of 74 days and almost a mile after fleeing his enclosure without anyone noticing!

“I guess that we will never know the full details of Solomon’s great adventure and how he managed to elude us all for so long,” - Lynn Cole, Solomon's owner.

We can only hope that this pioneer tortoise wont give its owners another scare!
