Western Hermanns Tortoise
Western Hermanns Tortoise

One of Whitford Bird Gardens rarest sights is Patricia, The garden's very own Western Hermanns Tortoise

Western Hermanns are a tortoise breed native to Italy and its surrounding islands (Sardinia and Sicily) and are of a medium size, weighing approximately 3-4 kg (6-9 lb)

Being of similar colouration to the foliage found on the garden bed, as well as being relatively small and rarely animated, Patricia can easily be missed by the eyes of even Blake himself, count yourself lucky if you are fortunate enough to see her
