Tonka the tortoise.

Did you know we are on Twitter? If you’re on Twitter, you are most welcome to follow us! And if you’re not on Twitter, you can still go to our Twitter page and read our Tweets. We have a feed just over there on the right of this blog. See it?

Well, this next story is something I’d normally put out over Twitter. It doesn’t really relate to the Saskatchewan Science Centre, and it’s a story that someone else has talked about. But, it’s so cute I want as many people as possible to see it!

Meet Tonka: the fastest tortoise on three legs!

Little Tonka lost her leg, so they gave her some wheels to make up the difference. Read more about Tonka here.

We do have turtles at the Saskatchewan Science Centre, named Sonny and Cher. They probably aren’t as fast as Tonka, but they’re pretty cute too. They are a different kind, called red-eared sliders. You should come visit them!

Stay curious,
