It provides a lifetime guarantee and the sort of maintenance-free solution appropriate for these magnificent animals who themselves have a life span of over 75 years.

Why Do Birds Live Longer Than Turtles?    Conventional wisdom in longevity studies used to be that the life span of a creature was roughly proportional to its body mass and heart rate—the big, slow elephant outlives the quick, small mouse.
