The Land of Giants

Giant land tortoises, that is. Our trip up into the highlands was, again, a bit damp, but that will never stop me from having a great time! What interesting creatures these land tortoises are, and it doesn't take long to learn their body language. It's basically move or I'll run you over.

Walked through a lava tube also. Got some really neat photographs!

Also got to meet Lonesome George, the famous ''last of his kind'' land tortoise.

UPDATE: Lonesome George has since passed away... his species is now extinct.
