QUITO, June 24 (Reuters) - Lonesome George, the last
remaining tortoise of his kind and a conservation icon, died on
Sunday of unknown causes, the Galapagos National Park said. He
was thought to be about 100 years old.
Pinta ancestry tortoises around Wolf Volcano, on neighbouring Isabela island, suggests the recent presence of at least one Pinta individual near Wolf Volcano. A possible purebreed Pinta candidate, male and dubbed "Tony", lives in a Prague zoo. A reward of $10,000 was offered for the discovery of a Pinta female  to help save the subspecies.
