A Tortoise is an animal companion. It has high toughness, caries lots of cargo, and has some useful combat dice.
Inside an Elephant Graveyard, sometimes the player can find a mysterious egg. After the player takes that egg and a few days past, a baby tortoise emerges. Later, the baby tortoise grows up and transforms itself into a giant tortoise. Then, the player must decide between to free the tortoise or to turn it to a companion of the expedition.
