At the Zurich Zoo a giant galapagos tortoise named Nigrita had nine of her eggs hatch. Robert Zingg, Zurich Zoo’ senior curator, stated, “Nigrita is our oldest animal at the zoo, but she is probably in her best years to lay eggs.” Nigrita is 80 years old, and the father of her children is a 54 year old galapagos tortoise named Jumbo. It took Nigrita’s baby turtles 2 months in total to hatch. Now, her children can live up to 150 more years.
