Butch Is Back!

Butch, the 150 yr. old Desert Tortoise, has been returned to his family.

You may remember in October that Butch had gone missing from his home in Cupertino. He has been in the Carle family since 1943 and spends every winter hibernating in a toolbox in the couple’s closet.  15 years ago a Stanford tortoise expert estimated Butch was 135, which was already quite long lived for a desert tortoise.
