To help remember the gentle-giant, the park will serve watermelon at the ceremony, Methuselah's favorite food.
Reptile Gardens spokesperson John Brockelsby says, "Watermelon is definitely a special thing at Reptile Gardens. For his birthday, I always bought two watermelons for Methuselah because it was his favorite food. I think Tuesday; I'll probably cut a little watermelon and feed our other two giant tortoises, because they like it also."
The unveiling is slated for 10:30 Tuesday morning, but festivities will last through 2 in the afternoon.
