OKLAHOMA CITY – This little guy was found running wild and looking pretty near 44th St. and Lincoln Wednesday morning.

Animal officials said this African Spur Tortoise is not indigenous to Oklahoma so it is more than likely someone’s pet.

Check your yards and cages, your best friend might be on the loose… or just looking for the hare.

After all, slow and steady wins the race.

Wildlife authorities said this reptile will do fine on its own in the summer months but needs to find its owner before the temperature drops… or else.
