I totally rode this tortoise. In the ’90s.I have photos to prove it. They’re not with me right now… but they exist. My family went to Reptile Gardens half a dozen times between birth and college. I know this turtle. I rode this turtle (an act that became forbidden in more recent years). 
He died today.
He was 130 years old. Which I guess is really old, even on Giant Tortoise standards. Awww, giant tortoise, you were wonderful.  
Rest in Peace, Methuselah.
