‘Dead’ Tortoise found in Garden

by duncanr

When the strange tortoise they found in their garden showed little signs of life, the two women feared the worse. Thinking it might have been attacked by a cat or some other animal or was so weak with hunger it had no energy to move, the one tried to tempt it with morsels of lettuce and tomato while the other called the Knoxwood Wildlife Rescue Centre, near Wigton, Cumbria.

When the expensively-trained at the public expense ‘expert’ from the centre arrived, all those years of hard work and study paid of. She eyed up the situation and after a brief examination sadly informed the ladies there was nothing she could do to help – and while they had acted with the best of intentions, they were wasting their time trying to coax it to eat – pointing out that it was rare to find a tortoise with ‘Made in China‘ stamped on it’s tummy !

Lonesome George Dead

by duncanr

He was the last of his kind.

Attempts to get him to mate with females of related tortoise species were unsuccessful. A desperate attempt by a female Swiss scientist to gather some of George’s sperm for use in artificial insemination by jerking him off also failed (watch vid for details)

Now that George has died, aged around 100 yr old, his sub-species has been officially declared extinct = http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-18574279
