Norman, As He’s Stormin’

A tortoise has come out of his shell to become a confident street walker.

Stormin’ Norman is a 10-year-old African sulcata tortoise who is turning heads by wandering through the streets of Aberdeen.

Owner Dianne Melville – who runs a reptile shop – walks with him, but she said Stormin’ Norman decides his route.

He goes out several times a day, and is photographed by bemused locals and tourists who see him.

Ms Melville said: “Stormin’ Norman is non-stop, a Nomad, he would walk the streets all day if he could.

“He has no fear of anyone or anything, people have to move out the way, he has no manners – that’s why he’s called Stormin’ Norman.”
