Ellie, most likely a wild-caught tortoise that was taken from the wild from the areas near Afghanistan to be sold in a pet store and eventually rescued from a glass tank in a classroom, was living with Floyd in the same tank and deplorable  conditions.  Ellie suffered from respiratory wheezing for years from breathing in the pine oils and the dry air from his environment with low humidity.


These are actual photos of Ellie and Floyd on the day they were rescued.
