Thoughts From Big Al The Giant Tortoise

    Vertebrate - Big Al @BigAISays We made it to #FriYAY again, Pals! Hope you've had a great week, and that you enjoy a weekend that's as happy as I feel when I get to eat new leaves on shrubbery. #FridayVibes #FridayFeeling

    Who loves Friday more than an adorable giant tortoise! No one, that's who. Big Al is clearly living his best life, eating his favorite shrubbery, thinking 'TGIF'. Nothing says Friday vibes more than this adorable big guy.

    Nature - Big Al @BigAISays I came from Aldabra, the world's second-largest coral atoll...part of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. But now I love my @zooknoxville home. After nearly 50 years, maybe I'm a country tortoise at heart. #FridayFeeling #Friyay

    Have you heard of Aldabra before? What a cool place to hail from, nice going Big Al! It sure is a long way from the Seychelles to Knoxville, Tennessee, but giant tortoises live a long time. We're betting that Big Al has made a lot of friends in the zoo where he lives now. After all, he's lived there 50 years!

    Vertebrate - Big Al @BigAISays Loving life in my new habitat! My favorite game is to see how long Miss Heather will let me sleep with my head under water before she makes me wake up. Today...20 minutes! 9 #FridayVibes #TGIF Hope everyone has a restful, wonderful weekend!
