10:25 AM -- Sad news from the BBC today:
Harriet the tortoise, one of the world's oldest known living creatures, has died in Australia aged about 175.
Senior vet Dr John Hangar told Australia's ABC that Harriet, a Giant Galapagos tortoise, had died of heart failure after a short illness.
"She had a very fairly acute heart attack and thankfully passed away quietly overnight," Dr Hangar said...
Her keepers put her longevity down to a stress-free life.
