R.I.P. Lonesome George.
Lonesome George was a a tortoise, the last of his kind. A Pinta Island Tortoise, he was a subspecies of the Galápagos tortoise, and was the rarest creature in the whole world. There was even a reward to anyone who could locate a female Pinta Island tortoise so that they would not become extinct.
Sadly, it was announced today that Lonesome George had died, and with him a whole breed of tortoise that this world will never see again.
George is my name.
