It was a shell of a time, but the marriage between giant tortoises Bibi and Poldi appears to have ended after 115 years. Staff at the Happ Reptile Zoo in Kalgenfurt, Austria, say the two suddenly have a frosty relationship and say Bibi has repeatedly attacked her longtime beau, biting off a piece of his shell during one attack. The zoo has called in experts to counsel the pair. Said zoo chief Helga Happ: “We have staff talking to and trying to engage the two in interacting, and we hope that they might find their harmony again.”
