"I Knew Thomas Jefferson"


Addwaita, a tortoise believed to have been 250 years old, has died in a zoo in India. If the zoo records are accurate, he was the world's oldest documented living animal. Oh, the stories he could tell.

Fare thee well, old man.

I love this photo. I would have liked to snuggle with him, though I'm not sure he'd have been keen to oblige me.

161, eh? You wear it very well, my friend.

I don't know, Tree. At 250 years old, I'm sure he'd gained a lot of wisdom. I'm sure he'd have snuggled up to you in a heartbeat, although he was probably a dirty old man. Good thing his little flippers would've moved slow.
