Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Saturday, February 12, 2005

10/26 Afternoon: About 30 minutes bus ride from Puerto Aryora (Santa Cruz) is El Chato. It is a reserve in the highlands of Santa Cruz, where giant tortoises can be observed in the wild. We saw 10-12 of them eating grass. Most of them were over 25 years old and weighing more than 300 lbs. Males are twice the size of females.
