This Special Tortoise Wears A Dress And Makes Everyone Happy!
Wasabi is a well dressed 42-pound African spur tortoise who has a spicy personality. But she isn't just your average tortoise, she is a therapy animal for owner Lisa Chicarella, who dresses the spunky tortoise to suit her personality.
Wasabi came to Chicarella as a timid 8-year-old after being given up by her first owner.
"I gave her the name Wasabi. She was so shy I wanted to give her a name that said she was hot stuff," said Chicarella
Wasabi has since come out of her shell. She loves affection, looking out the window and munching on pizza crusts. However, this tortoise has a little bit of attitude.
"Wasabi can be a real force of nature. Wasabi wants what she wants when she wants it," said Chicarella.
Wasabi first started wearing clothes for the practical reason to stay warm during her first winter as a working tortoise. Wasabi took to the dresses and now has a collection of outfits to wear.
"Sad truth is, she has more dresses than I do. And hers are custom made," sais Chicarella.
Wasabi isn't just about being a fashion model, she is also really good at cheering people up and taking their minds off of stressful things!
"She gives people the opportunity to forget, even if it's just for a little while," Chicarella said. "She's my girl and I wouldn't trade her for the world."
