Kuhio owned an “odd private collection” of animals, according to Tennessee’s Lawrence Democrat. He reportedly collected rare birds during his trip around the world.
Kuhio kept a pet turtle in his front yard (right image). With an estimated age of 750 years old, the turtle served as a pet to Kuhio’s royal family for almost 150 years.
