Ellie is a wild Leopard Tortoise from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
She lives in a Villa where my girl friends daughter lived one summer. The guard at the Villa said that she showed up about 5 years ago.
The residents of the Villa occasionally feed her Injera which is a local bread made from the grass Eragrostis tef which is high in fiber, iron, protein and calcium.
I discovered that the injera bread has more nutrients for the tortoise than Mazuri.
Leopard tortoises from Ethiopia get huge. They get a lot larger than leopards from other areas.
