Theo Parvarie, an 11-year-old Aberdeen schoolboy, discovered a terrapin trapped in a frozen puddle at a park. He broke the ice and freed the turtle's legs. He brought the wounded animal to his teacher who then contacted the SPCA.
The animal is now recovering at the Scottish SPCA's Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Drumoak. She has been named Theodora, after her rescuer.
As terrapins require heat, Theo's rescue saved her life, an officer for the Scottish SPCA told BBC News.
