Giant Tortoise Enjoying Visiting Family of Four (Weekly Photo)

Galapagos Islands Animals, Santa Cruz Island, Things to Do

Okay, so maybe this giant tortoise isn’t really too aware of the family around him. The grass does look pretty good! I think that the shot that dad is taking is going to be even better than this one.


In the Galapagos, there are rules about flash photography and being too close and touching the animals. Flashes are prohibited, as is touching or feeding the animals. All visitors must maintain certain distance from the animals. They are allowed to approach us, but not the other way around.
