Sadly for the title character, the same can’t be said for many of his companions from the original, Oscar-winning 1976 film.

Along the way, Rock has seen his trainer, his rival-cum-sparring-partner, his wife and his best friend all pass on. Thank God, then, that he still has his turtles.

In a recent Instagram post, Rocky Balboa actor/creator Sylvester Stallone revealed that Rocky’s turtles – Cuff and Link – are very much still alive.

Referring to them as his “original buddies from the first Rocky”, Sly also informed his followers that the pair were now around 44-years-old.

In the first Rocky, Balboa introduced Talia Shire’s love interest, Adrian, to his “exotic animals” on their first date.

While Adrian passed away somewhere between Rocky V and 2006’s Rocky Balboa, Cuff and Link have stuck around to a ripe old age.
