Henry is an 18-year-old sulcata tortoise with a pretty big following on Instagram – that’s not something that many tortoises have. His mom Amanda Green adopted him four years ago hoping she would temporarily foster him, but “ended up falling in love.”

“I was like, ‘If he needs a forever home, I’ll be that for him!'” Amanda shares her experience as a tortoise owner. “Henry definitely has a personality … more than I anticipated. He’s really social, he’s curious. … He’s never really in his shell. Henry will greet anyone who comes into the apartment.”

And he’s obviously a social media star! See some photos of Henry below and follow his page for more updates.
