Galapagos Tortoise Celebrates 70th Birthday Milestone With Melon Cake

Hugo the Galapagos tortoise celebrated his 70th birthday by chowing down on a refreshing tower of fruit at Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales.

This video shows Hugo slowly devouring a three-tiered treat of melon, strawberry and kiwi fruit. The “cake” was topped with apples, carved to show “70”.

Hugo is the park’s oldest resident, and has lived there since 1963. He’s now considered middle-aged, as he’s projected to live for around 150 years. Credit: Australian Reptile Park via Storyful
