St. Augustine, Fla. — The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park is asking for help finding two Galapagos tortoises that were stolen from the zoo Nov. 30.
The tortoises are endangered and have been at the zoo since 2017 as part of a captive breeding program.
The zoo did not detail exactly how the tortoises were stolen.
But zookeepers are worried about them because require special diets and supplements. They cannot be left outside on cool nights.
The tortoises cannot legally be sold and are microchipped.
If you know anyone who recently brought a large, black tortoise home, the Alligator Farm is asking that you contact the St. Augustine Police Department at (904) 825-1070.
