OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A loggerhead sea turtle in Omaha is turning 20 years old.

Officials at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium say they will celebrate Harold’s birthday on Thursday.

Harold, who is a girl, was born in 1995 near Wassaw Island, which is southeast of Savannah, Georgia. She was rescued from her nest along with 11 other sea turtles. She lived at another facility before she was brought to Omaha in 2004.

Harold is on display in the underwater tunnel of the aquarium’s shark reef exhibit. Officials say loggerhead sea turtles can live 50 years or more.
