Leonardo DiCaprio Pays $400 for a Turtle

| by

Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t afraid of commitment at all, with animals, anyways. The actor just splurged $400 in a new pet tortoise.

Leo purchased the ten-year-old Sulcata tortoise at the North American Reptile Breeders Conference and Trade Show in Anaheim, California this weekend. These tortoises are a long-term commitment, too, they have a life expectancy of about 80 years.

And Leo went all out, too. He requested the biggest turtle the store had. His new pet weighs in at a whopping 38 pounds. What’s worse is that this thing can grow to weigh 200 pounds.

Now that’s a lot of turtle food!

All of that aside, when is he going to commit to Bar Refaeli already??? That’s what I want to know.
