NEW YORK -- Amanda Green tells WPIX she never could have imagined the response she got when posting an ad on Craigslist looking for someone to walk her pet tortoise named Henry.

“There's so many people out there, more than I ever expected,” Green said.

With the weather getting nicer, Green said started looking for someone to walk the 16-year-old tortoise while she's at work.

In the Craigslist ad, she offered just $10 an hour to anyone willing to take Henry to Central Park in his carrier for a few hours each week.

“This is totally a side, side, side gig. It’s a little higher than minimum wage. I’d pay more if I could. This is for someone who is doing it for the love of being in the park, the love of the outdoors and the love of Henry,” Green told WPIX.

Green said she plans to look at each of the applicants very carefully before deciding who gets the job.

Based on Henry's Instagram, who wouldn't want the job?
