Darwin's Tortoise Harriet Dies at 176

by jaydro

Or is it 175? I was waiting for Nick to post this, but, ah, I guess he's otherwise occupied. Not as old as the venerable Addwaita, but was the oldest documented living animal (Addwaita's papers were never in ze proper order) and even more interesting as possibly haven been collected by Sir Charles Darwin from the Galapagos. Rest in peace, Harriet.

Rest in peace, Harreit.

Side note: This picture was taken shortly before Steve Irwin (unsuccessfully) tried feeding his baby to the tortoise.
