Giant Tortoise

Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos, Ecuador

Giant Tortoise

Each of the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador has its own species of Giant Tortoise. This close-up photograph of a Santa Cruz Galápagos Tortoise (Chelonoidis porteri) was taken from less than 14 feet away in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. We photographed a number of tortoises that morning, but this one seemed to be the oldest.
