Sad.


One of the world's oldest creatures, a giant tortoise believed to have been about 250 years old, has died in the Calcutta zoo where it spent more than half its long life.


That's right, 250. Morla territory (MPEG).

    I wonder how he lived to be two and a half times the average life span of Aldabra tortoises.

    Also, I never noticed it before, but the kid reading the book in Neverending Story looks EXACTLY like Iggy when he was a kid. Which is to say, he must have grown up to be pretty funny-looking.
