A Tortoise Fell Off Wall, Cracked His Shell & Then Gets Repaired

    Here is Humpty, a tortoise that fell off of a 10-foot-wall after he was chased by a neighbor's dog. Luckily the fall wasn't fatal but Humpty's shell broke in three places. 

    The County of San Diego Animal Services brought the 70-pound tortoise to a veterinarian who specialized in reptiles. That vet drilled screws into the shell and tied it together for stability then utilized a material used in dentures to seal them.

    The surgery cost $4,000 and was paid through a donor initiative called the Spirit Fund.
