I thought as much. Thank You Jenny.
Cheers Barry. You know just as much as CS!
For Jenny. (from memory cough cough) They tend to live on arid islands in Galapagos, where food is less abundant. The Galapagos giant tortoise spends an average of 16 hours per day resting. The rest of their time is spent eating grasses, fruits and cactus pads. They enjoy bathing in water, but can survive for up to a year without water or food. I hope this helps.
Lol Barry! Ok, according to internet sources, they like to bathe and they rest for an average of 16 hours a day, so maybe they are combining the two activities!
Ask CS to find out. I've no doubt the answer is on the internet.
No tortoise at the moment, but 3 fluffy black and white goats wandered by...
I wonder why they like to spend so long just sitting in the water?
1oct19--Galápagos giant tortoise are the largest living species of tortoise. Giant tortoises exist on only two remote archipelagos: the Galápagos Islands and Aldabrachelys gigantea of Aldabra in the Indian Ocean, 700 km east of Tanzania. The Galápagos tortoises are native to seven of the Galápagos Islands. The tortoise is one of the longest-lived vertebrates with lifespans in the wild of over 100 years ( a captive individual lived at least 170 years ).EnJoy EnJoy
Thank you Carol! I love this cam. (Pity it keeps buffering and going off line) The info tag suggests that the tortoises are more frequently seen September to March, so I hope you see more from now on :)
