A Sulcata Tortoise
For $400 in 2010, Leonardo DiCaprio picked up a 10-year-old Sulcata tortoise at the North American Reptile Breeders Conference and Trade Show in Anaheim, CA. A long term commitment to say the least, the tortoise is expected to live another 80 years and grow to around 200 pounds. It’s rare to have a pet companion that has a great chance of outliving its parents. The good news, given Leo’s string of successful movies, long standing Hollywood career, and newly earned Oscar, there’s a good chance he will be able to take care of his new companion for another 8+ decades.
