Harriet the Tortoise Dies at Age 176

She used to hang with Charles Darwin, who seemed confused about her sexuality, calling her Harry.
As the
TimesOnline reports, Harriet the tortoise died at the age of 176:
SHE visited three continents, inspired Darwin’s theory of evolution and made it into the record books, yet for more than a century everyone thought she was male. Harriet, the world’s oldest tortoise, has died in an Australian zoo, aged 176.
