Animals of the Galapagos

Image 1 of 15


A Galapagos giant tortoise at the Charles Darwin Research Station eats her greens. This captive tortoise is part of a breeding program that has already released hundreds of juveniles back onto their native islands. Full-grown adults can weigh more than 600 pounds and live up to 100 years or more. Giant tortoises are found only in the Galapagos.
