Check Out The Galapagos Turtles At the New 'Giant of the Galapagos' Exhibit in ZSL London Zoo

Galapagos Tortoises Are Messy Eaters!

This Galapagos Tortoise just finished a snack in the new 'Giant of the Galapagos' exhibit at the London Zoo and seems like his haste made some waste all over his little turtle chin. Oh well, let's not point fingers at this 70-year-old (!) animal who weighs about 440 pounds — after all Dirk's joined by two female tortoises (Dolly, 16, and Dolores, 14) in hopes of starting up a breeding program at the zoo.
