Harriet the Turtle, once a resident of the Galapagos Islands, died yesterday in Australia. She was aged 176 years and once, if reports are to be believed, belonged to the Naturalist and Explorer Charles Darwin, who first was introduced to Harriet in 1835 when she was between 4 and 5 years old.
Darwin completed a voyage of Discovery aboard HMS Beagle in 1835 leading him to write a series of papers on behalf of scientific societies in Great Britain culminating in the Origin of Species.
