The escapee is fe­male, weighs 55kg and has a “gen­tle” dis­po­si­tion – but a his­tory of run­ning away. A Ja­panese zoo said on Thurs­day it was search­ing for its gi­ant tor­toise, which has es­caped for the se­cond time in less than two weeks. The rep­tile, mea­sur­ing about 3 feet and 3 inches in length, was cap­tured on se­cu­rity cam­eras as she wan­dered out of the main en­trance of Shibukawa An­i­mal Park in Okayama pre­fec­ture on Tues­day morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to zoo staffer Yoshimi Ya­mane. The tor­toise “won’t im­me­di­ately die be­cause it will eat grass avail­able around the zoo, but we’re all very wor­ried”, Ya­mane told AFP. “She’s quiet and gen­tle,” Ya­mane said, adding that the zoo has re­ceived no re­ports of sight­ings of the ap­prox­i­mately 35-year-old tor­toise. Tues­day’s es­cape was the se­cond time in less than a fort­night that the fleet-footed rep­tile, which is al­lowed to walk freely in­side the park dur­ing open­ing hours, fled the zoo.
