A rare 230-year-old tortoise died at Shanghai Zoo recently, where it lived for 35 years, leaving only four of the species left in the world.

The zookeeper said the tortoise was found in Gejiu, Yunnan Province, in 1971. The rare species has only been found in two regions in China the Taihu Lake in Jiangsu Province and the Honghe River in Yunnan Province. The zoo was saddened by the loss as it considered the tortoise to be in good condition. But a post-mortem examination showed its liver was damaged.
