PULLMAN, Wash. – A tortoise that has lived at Washington State University since its leg was amputated will be leaving for a new home. A group of friends said goodbye to Gamera Tuesday with pumpkin cake and lots of photo ops.
Gamera, who has appeared on the NBC Today Show, will be an ambassador of his species and also for amputees of all makes and sizes (including humans). His new home will have lots of room to roam, with indoor and outdoor enclosures.
