LESSON 3

The oldest animal and the oldest vomit in the world!

VOICE: She's about 170 years old. Her name is Harriet and she now lives in Australia. She is said to be one of the tortoises that Charles Darwin himself took from the Galapagos Islands in 1835.

DAVE HAWKSETT: Tortoises are part of the Chelonian Family and the greatest authentic age recorded so far is at least 188 years. And that was from a type of tortoise called a Madagascar radiated tortoise and it was actually presented to the Tonga Royal Family by Captain Cook in the late seventeen hundreds, either 1773 or 1777. And it remained in their care until it died in 1965.

DAVE HAWKSETT: The oldest vomit sounds a bit strange but it's actually a sample of 160 million year old dinosaur vomit. Well, there's nothing older. It's quite incredible.
