Galapagos Giant Tortoise – Walks On

The Galapagos Giant Tortoise walks on

We watched this Galapagos Giant Tortoise for nearly thirty minutes before he decided it was time to walk on. Rather than follow him, we headed in the direction the female had gone to see what else we could see in the Highlands of Santa Cruz.

I had to take one last photo of the giant as he approached me. Neither he nor I was intimidated by the other. As he got closer, I gave him space, and he ambled on by. This, our very first stop in the Galapagos Islands, was worth the trip. I thoroughly enjoyed being among these magnificent animals.
