Pictures of Galapagos Tortoises

The Giant Galapagos Tortoise (Geochelone elephantopus) is universally known to be the Worlds Largest Tortoise species. The record for the World’s Biggest Tortoise or should I say “Heaviest Tortoise” is well over 900 pounds with a shell length just shy of 54 inches. These animals obviously come from the Galapagos Islands off of the Ecuadorian coast. Charles Darwin made the Galapagos famous with his Theory Of Evolution and his famous Darwin Finches. In fact, the Worlds most respected Galapagos Tortoise Breeding Facility is located on the Galapagos Islands and is appropriately named the Darwin Research Center Station.
