They say slow and steady wins the race and thats definitely true of the Giant Tortoise. The oldest recorded Giant Tortoise died in 2006 at the age of 255! Since the 1879’s he had been living in the Alipore Zoological Gardens in Kolkata. Maybe if we take life a little slower pace we’ll live a little longer. What do you think?
