After 44 years, the turtles from the "Rocky" movie still live with Sylvester Stallone!


Exactly forty years ago, Sylvester Stallone played the protagonist role of Rocky Balboa in the movie "Rocky", for the first time.

It was 1975 and that movie marked the beginning of a saga destined to continue to thrill both the young and the old.

In addition to the main characters, though, how many of you remember the two cute turtles that the protagonist took care of? 

Well, those two aquatic turtles, which in the movie, Rocky named "Cuff" and "Link", are still alive and well and they just had their 44th birthday!

Furthermore, they still live happily in an aquarium in the famous American actor, Sylvester Stallone's house!

This is one of those cases, in which life on the screen reflects the reality ― Sylvester Stallone actually adopted the two baby turtles after they had finished making the movie!

If you recall, in the movie, Rocky enters the exotic pet store "J * M Tropical Fish" to buy food for his two turtles. This is where the first meeting took place, between Rocky and Adriana, who was working at the pet store.

In fact, the turtles become a nice excuse, for our protagonist, to return to the store several times and establish a relationship with the girl, Andriana, that soon turns into an iconic passionate romance that has thrilled several generations of Rocky Balboa fans!

Cuff and Link have, so far, lived a life of luxury with the actor! In addition, the two turtles have also not given up appearing in other movies, such as in "Creed II" (2018) ... just like real Hollywood movie stars!


On his Instagram profile, Stallone has published a selfie with his beloved turtles, provoking enthusiastic responses by thousands of fans.

"In CREED 2 with my original buddies from the first Rocky ... CUFF and LINK, now about 44 years old!" ― this is the comment regarding the photo, posted by the celebrated actor.
