Bits, a 15-year old San Antonio resident and a tortoise, has reportedly caused $150,000 worth of damage to a neighbor’s home. Weighing in at around 120lbs, he reportedly knocked down a heat lamp in his outdoor enclosure which started a fire that spread. The incident happened midnight on January 10th, luckily leaving both Bits and the neighboring family unharmed.
If this incident was an accident or possibly motivated remains unclear and Bits could not be reached for a comment.
