Baby Giant Galapagos Tortoises on Santa Cruz Island

Galapagos Islands Animals, Santa Cruz Island

The baby tortoise hatching season is an exciting one in the Galapagos. Learn more about the baby giant tortoises (video).

At both of the nurseries (Santa Cruz and Isabela Islands) you can see baby tortoises at different stages of growth. They generally stay at these centers for the first 4-6 years of their life, and then are released into the wild.
