Old Iron Beak is a male non-anthropomorphic tortoise.


An old but temperamental tortoise known for biting people's tails, Old Iron Beak was bought by Donald Duck in 1991 at a holistic pet shop on behalf of Scrooge McDuck, to be part of Scrooge's Money Bin's defence system. Donald initially wanted to go with a moat full of alligators, but, considering the budget Scrooge had given him, instead purchased Old Iron Beak "for cheap" and put him in a children's swimming pool. Not long after, however, Scrooge himself was bitten by Iron Beak, and ordered him taken off the premises as a result.

Behind the scenes
