Adoptable alert! Meet Carpas! (Also I hope you like Barry Manilow because I worked hard on this parody…)

His name is Carpas– the Russian tortoise.
With striations on his shell and without a single smell,
He likes his veggies and his chop-chop
While he likes to be a SelfHelp Home star
He’s dreams of finding home go way far,
He dreams of his forever beat, with family and maybe treats
He’s a sweet pea tortoise; who could ask for more???

Yea it’s Carpas, Carpas the tortoise,
You know that his life isn’t short, no,
Yea it’s Carpas, Carpas the tortooooooiiiiiiseeeeeee

He’s only 15, that means he can live another 40-50 years with his foreverrrrrr… forever famiiiillllyyyyyyyy…..
