Diego is 150, living in the Galapagos Islands once again. He must have been born just a few years after Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands.
Voice of San Diego has a great little story about Diego, who used to live at the San Diego Zoo.
Back in the 1950s, kids were allowed to ride the tortoises at the San Diego Zoo. I loved it. Actually, "ride" is probably the wrong word. As I recall, I just got a place to sit. I envied my brother, whose tortoise actually took off across the enclosed area at the Children's Zoo. But then, perhaps "took off" isn't the right word either.
