Beloved turtle celebrates 50th birthday party

Dec 04, 2018 15:08 IST

A turtle given to a bedridden little boy in New Hampshire back in 1968 celebrated her 50th birthday with party hats, a birthday cake with the right number of candles, and many well-wishers. Diane the Turtle was given to Jim Tonner when he was 12 and being treated for hip arthritis in Massachusetts. Tonner said when he was a child, turtles like Diane were popular pets, but many didn't live that long. That's why she's so unusual, he added.
