For starters, that is an amazing name for a tortoise. He’s probably not as delicious as a taco, and his shell is way tougher than even the most stale of Taco Bell shells. Second of all, how impressive is it that a tortoise will answer when called? He’s like a really slow, hard, and not furry dog. He’s also tiny and easily fits in the palm of your hand!

This awesome tortoise is a compact bundle of cute. It’s probably safe to say that many of us would be more than comfortable having him around in our garden, even if he might get into trouble for eating your fresh greens and berries. Such is the price to pay for a responsive reptile unlike any other. Much respect to the scientists who figured out that Taco the tortoise responds to voice commands.
