BEXAR COUNTY, TX – A family outside of San Antonio had a giant and unexpected visitor wandering around their yard…a huge tortoise.

The Lewanskis’ have no idea where he came from, but want to make him feel at home. They’ve searched for a local reptile rescue organization to take the tortoise, but no one has come out of their shell.

Finally they found someone who keeps turtles on their property and this big boy fits right in.

You know what they say, everything’s bigger in Texas.
