About The Notortoise BIG

When you’re a celebrity online, having a tough shell helps to block out all the haters, though The Notortoise BIG doesn’t seem to have many of those. The Notortoise BIG, a 19 year old sulcata tortoise living in NYC, doesn’t live the average life of a teenager in the big city. What started off as a temporary fostering turned into a full time family, as tortoise mom Amanda Green instantly fell in love with her new friend. Known for his stylish collection of handcrafted shell covers, The Notortoise BIG has built up a devoted audience on social media with nearly 70K followers who regularly enjoy watching the little guy speedwalk on the streets of New York, hang out in his apartment, or just munch on some leaves.
