She has survived two world wars, six different monarchs and 21 US Presidents.
Tommy the female Hermann’s tortoise has celebrated her 121st birthday and with it has become the world’s oldest living pet.
Born in 1898, Tommy has been in Sheila Floris’s family since 1909 when her grandmother Margaret Cloonan bought her for £1 – when the tortoise was already 11 years old.
Tommy has lived with Sheila, 62, since she was a child and the property developer claims to have never once taken her to the vet and that her faithful tortoise is still in perfect health despite her age.
