"I was seeing a trend on Instagram where families with children would take photos wearing matching outfits," said Kasey, an illustrator.

"I just thought it would be funny to do the same but with our tortoise - it's sort of an inside joke I guess.

"I have a background in fashion design, so nearly all of Ethel's outfits are made or altered from kids clothes by me.

"I try not to spend more than £4 on each outfit, otherwise this whole idea wouldn't be sustainable for us - she's gone through so many."

Kasey explained that she intends hasn't been able to keep all of Ethel's outfits, due to sheer volume.

"Ethel's favourite activity is eating, she also likes basking in the sunshine and going for walks in the park," adds Kasey.

"Her favourite treat is bell peppers, she also likes bok choy, zucchini and pumpkin. Normally though, she just eats grass and weeds.

"Although she is not a sea turtle she really enjoys beach days.

"There is plenty of sunshine, and a lot of rocks to climb and sand to dig in."
