Mating Galapagos Giant Tortoises

Mating Galapagos Giant Tortoises.

This photo is the G-rated version of the mating pair of Galapagos Giant Tortoises we encountered during our visit to the Santa Cruz Highlands to see the Galapagos Giant Tortoises. The facility offered knee-high rubber boots to all their visitors to wear as we walked through the area. The boots were necessary to protect our shoes and clothing from the mud. There were places where we sank at least ankle-deep into the rich black mud. The next image in this series is for more mature viewers. As mentioned in the description of the first image, the purpose of featuring this mating pair is to illustrate the differences between males and females. I was out of position to photograph them side by side.
