Proud Father at 111 Years!

A reptile in New Zealand has become the proud father of eleven at the age of 111.


Henry, a centenarian tuatara resides at the Southland Museum and Art Gallery and was a "grumpy old man" until he had a cancerous tumour removed from his genitals in 2002.


The gallery's tuatara curator Lindsay Hazley revealed Henry became less aggressive after the operation and more keen on the opposite sex.
He was caught getting familiar with a female named Mildred last March.


Lindsay said: "I went off the idea he was good for breeding, but once the tumour was removed, he was no longer aggressive."


The museum has 72 of the reptiles after 42 hatchings in the past two years, reports Metro.
