Wooahh, he is very big! Was he placid or did you stay well clear? 🙂
Hi Drina: he was extremely placid but a bit wary of us. Given that they were hunted to near extinction the fact that they tolerate us at all is nothing short of amazing. But then again, they move so slowly that there is little other choice.
What did that tortoise make of Nancy? – he’s not giving much away.
If I were to guess, Heather, it would go something like this: “Another tedious tourist; why can’t they all just go home and leave us in peace.” 🙂
