Placerville (CBS13) – The Placerville turtle was successfully discovered three weeks after it went missing.
An 11-year-old, 100-pound reptile was found in the yard of a house about two miles away on Monday, says his owner. A woman living in her parents’ house noticed him in the news and called her owner.
Celeste was in good shape and needed only a bath, says his owner. He is now back with his family.
Celest escaped from the enclosure on May 10. After a few days of searching, his owner turned to the media for help. According to them, Celest is always looking for adventure, often trying to escape from under the fence, but is usually closely monitored.
The average lifespan of a turtle like Celest is close to 120 years.
