Dear skipgal-ga, Thanks for the interesting question. The answer is: Old Rip, the horned lizard/horned toad from Eastland, Texas. He was buried from 1897-1928 in the cornerstone of the Eastland County Courthouse. From the Texas Midwest Community Network website: Eastland, Texas' "...most famous resident, ?Old Rip? can be seen lying in state at the courthouse. This horned toad was entombed in the courthouse cornerstone for 31 years before the building was razed for a new one. To everyone?s amazement, he was still alive! He lived only a year after that, but his story and his namesake remain ?Alive & Kickin?! "Eastland" http://www.texasmidwest.org/eastland.html also From the Abilene Reporter-News Online: "Local News" http://www.texnews.com/local97/ken030297.html My Google search: "31 years without food and water" From that I found some puzzle websites--one of them mentioned Eastland, Texas. I then ran the Google search: "31 years" Eastland and came up with the result. That was an amazing story--thanks! bobcooper-ga
