The news about Braden Holtby’s pet preferences first broke in October 2018. The Stanley Cup Champion, Vezina-winner, guitar-playing crooner said that while his teammates were dog people, he chose to own a tortoise.
In a piece on “Capitals Quirkiness” for Washington Life Magazine, Catharine Trifiletti spoke with some of the players about hidden talents, fun facts, and favorite things.
Holtby’s fave was his pet Leopard tortoise. And it has a name: Honey.
Now that we have one more piece of this three-dimensional puzzle, let’s delve deeper into the world of the Leopard tortoise.
Here’s what we know about the majestic creature that captured Holtby’s heart.
Though we have found the first answer to our questions, RMNB will continue its groundbreaking, hardnosed, frickin’-weird investigative journalism until all the questions have been answered about Braden Holtby’s tortoise.
