The Briton from the town of Turksberry loves fresh beer and companionship. Every night, a 48-year-old man goes to the pub with his friend, a large turtle.
Jason Smith is the owner of a seven-year-old spurred tortoise named Nancy. This is still a very young animal: reptiles of this species live up to seventy years and reach a centner weight. Jason leads his leisurely pet on a leash, like a dog, avoiding crowded places for walks.
Beer regulars are used to Nancy and consider her something of a mascot. The turtle does not drink beer - it just sits next to the owner and indulges in philosophical thoughts.
