A Determined African Spurred Tortoise Cracks Open a Giant Pumpkin to Enjoy the Sweet Fruit Inside

Dozer the Tortoise Pumpkin Eating

As part of the autumn season celebration, caretakers at the Oregon Zoo set out a giant pumpkin for Dozer, the African spurred (sulcata) tortoise to crack open and enjoy. Which he happily did, much in the same manner in which his elephant neighbors squished squash during the previous week.

Dozer the sulcata tortoise thoroughly enjoyed his pumpkin this year.#shellebrategourdtimes
