Galapagos Islands Animals, Galapagos Travel Story

These pictures and write-up were sent in by Jimmy, a Tour Leader.

This morning during the excursion to the giant tortoises reserve where we can find these wonderful creatures, we found one of them particularly curious on what was going on around it.

Surprised By a Galapagos Giant Tortoise

While the rest of the guests were walking following the naturalist guide, there was a lady that decided to get closer to this gigantic animal and waited patiently for its reaction.


After a few minutes,this tortoise raised his head slowly and it seems that it was not scared of the guest’s presence at all. Being with this prehistoric animal made ​​her trip something unforgettable.
