Roman tortoise discovered on the moors

Last weekend a rare Roman tortoise (Testudo testudo) was spotted on the Somerset moors for the first time in over a thousand years. The slow moving beast was seen advancing in its attacking gait, stalking its traditional prey (Ferociouss celticus). An expert said that it appeared to be a juvenile. Its owner, a Mr Claudius Ceasar of Rome, has asked for any news of its current location.
