100 Year Old Tortoises Eat A Pumpkin To Celebrate The San Diego Zoo's 100th Anniversary

October 6, 2016


Because nothing says 'Happy Hundredth!' like pumpkin, this is a video of some of the San Diego Zoo's Galapagos tortoises eating pumpkins to celebrate the zoo's 100th anniversary. A hundred years, wow, it's hard to believe zoos even existed in 1016. "1916." What? "1916." Huh? "IT WAS 1916." Is this some sort of puzzle? Hold on let me go get my decoder ring.

Our Galapagos tortoise elders, many of whom are over 100, helped us ring in our 100th birthday on October 2, 2016, along with thousands of our closest friends. When we were founded in 1916, we were dedicated to the children of San Diego, but we rededicated ourselves to the children of the world as we fight against extinction in over 80 countries. Thanks for your support over the years. Here's to the next 100!

"Thousands of closest friends?" I don't care if you're a zoo, who has thousands of close friends? Does every single one know all your secrets? I only have two close friends, and one is an internet friend I've never met in real life. That said, somebody should tell those tortoises to stop eating the rind, that's the shitty part. This isn't a watermelon.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to hairless, who eats oranges without peeling them because he's the world's second laziest person.
