Originally from Aldabra in the Seychelles, the species can reach up to 1m in length with an average lifespan of more than 150 years. The park’s oldest giant tortoise is said to have died at the age of 250 years.
The second-largest species of tortoise in the world, the Aldabra species is a cousin of the native domed and saddle-backed giant tortoises, which have gone extinct since the early 18th century.
