Worlds Oldest Animal Dies


In Memory

Adwitya, the 250+ year old tortuous who was reportadly the worlds oldest living animal has died at his home in the Kolkata Zoo in India. Taken from his birth place on the Syeychelles Islands in 1875 as a gift for Robert Clive of the East India Company, Adwitya is belived to have been born around 1751. You know why this isn't a bigger story in the mainstream press? Anti-turtle prejudice, pure and simple.

Quote from recent memorial service:

"...he lived slow, he died slow, and left a lasting legacy of torper..."

I think the news is just a little slow in getting out.
