Harriet, the 175 Year Old Tortoise, Wins Vegetable Magazine's Man Of The Year

Vegetable of the Year Awards...

Vegetable Magazine CoverHarriet, the 175 year old Giant Galapagos tortoise who lives in Australia Zoo on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, has been named Man of the Year by the Vegetable Magazine.

Harriet, a vegetarian, enjoys a strict vegetable diet which includes green beans and celery.

Barney White, editor of the Vegetable Magazine, told us:

"It's a radical step for the magazine. We have never named anything other than a vegetable as our Man of the Year before. Last year our Man of the Year was a Brussels Sprout."

The Vegetable Magazine, which has a readership of over 17,000, caused controversy in 2002 when it short-listed President George W Bush as it's Man of the Year. After a close vote, however, President Bush lost to a leek.
