A Day in the Life of Two Mexican Tortoises
#223: Laura Cohen and her Tortoises Pedro and Petra are featured in Johanna Seigmann’s photographic book “In Good Company.” The tortoises came from the huge live animal market in her town, Mexico City. Pedro was as big as a Bic pen and unlikely to live. Petra was in a cardboard box full of mice for sale. With a lifespan upwards of 100 years, Laura said the tortoises will long outlive her, so her son has agreed to inherit them.
