Being a symbol of wisdom, Sherman, our Sulcata tortoise, exemplifies just that. Stoic in nature, Sherman enjoys the simple things in life: eating, burrowing, hanging out with friends, and running. Believe it or not, Sherman is fast, and he always moves with a sense of purpose, especially when a tomato is involved. Additionally, he is a fast digger, and in one day, he can burrow into the ground as far as a couple of feet! With his fast digging and patrolling of the sanctuary, he continually proves the common “slow tortoise” stereotype wrong. Being only eight and a half years old, Sherman has a long life ahead of him, as tortoises can live equally as long as humans. If you’re into calm and cool vibes, Sherman is the man for you.
