Last Pinta Island Tortoise, Lonesome George, Dies at 100

A snapshot of the Wikipedia page ft. Lonesome George.

Lonesome George, who was residing at Ecuador’s Galápagos National Park, passed away Sunday morning from natural causes at the age of 100. After multiple failed attempts to mate him with female partners, he had become the last known tortoise of his kind. The Pinta Island Tortoise now joins the the Dodo bird on the extinct list. (They even changed the Wikipedia page to extinct, as shown left) What a sad day for tortoises everywhere.

What effect do you think Lonesome George’s passing will have? Comment below!
