An honour to meet a 300 year old tortoise
« on: March 04, 2013, 12:43:01 pm »
I had the honour to meet this guy in Zimbabwe on Friday before heading home. He's called Tommy and it's claimed he is 300 years old. Amazing feeling to stroke him on the head and think through what might have been happening the year he was born, 1713. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1713 Below is a picture of his house where he retires every night.
