Aldabra Giant Tortoise!

Seychelles is home to a number of incredible land-dwelling species, like the curious Aldabra Giant Tortoises. These ancient creatures can weigh well over 400kg and grow to be roughly 1.3m in length. Some individuals have grown over 250 years old, but most live between 80 and 120 years. Due to their long lifespan, they only reach sexual maturity at around 30 years. Once mated, the female will lay roughly 25 eggs in a dry, shallow next and incubation takes up to 8 months. These large, slow-moving creatures are herbivorous. They have also been known to eat fruits and berries.

Be sure to keep an eye out for these gentle giants when exploring the island of Seychelles!
