In another heartwarming story about an old man, the elderly takes a tortoise man for a walk. Bon-Chan is a 26-year-old turtle that has been well roaming around the streets of Tsukishima, Tokyo, per My Modern Met. His master, Hisao Mitani, takes great pride in him and is quite popular with his big guy in the country and around the world. Mitani met this beauty when he was just the size of his palm. Nurturing and caring for the animal, he realized that he was going through a growth spurt at the age of 10. Weighing around 155 pounds, Bon-Chan is accompanied by Mitani for a stroll every day through regular paths. Mitani also mentioned that his reptile knows the routes well. He was quoted as saying by the publication, “We walk the neighborhood and are pretty famous around here. African tortoises can live up to 150 years old, so Bon-chan is still in the prime of his life with energy to spare.”

When asked about the bond they share, Mitani gave a pleasant and humorous reply, “I never had any children, but 19 years ago my wife caught the eyes of this little tortoise and felt an instant bond with him. I couldn't leave the store without it. But we had no idea he would become this big. He knows all my dirty secrets – if he could talk I would be in trouble," reported the publication.
