Slow pet for a slow boat

Meet Thomasina the tortoise; arguably the perfect pet for a 4mph canal boat. After all what other pet can't out-run the boat and will happily live on dandelion, clover and weeds freely available in towpath verges?
Thomasina is 67, which is barely middle-aged for a tortoise, and has been with her carers for 40 years now. Today she was enjoying the sun and a dandelion snack at Napton.
