Giant turtles trained to climb scales
The Aldabra giant tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea) belongs to the family of the land turtles. They are endemic to the Aldabra atoll but have also been released on other isles of the Seychelles. The Aldabra giant turtle lives in the dry areas of the islands, such as open spots in the wood, grasslands and in mangrove swamps. The animals are generally herbivores (fruits, parts of plants) but do eat bait from time to time. The animals can weigh up to two hundred kilos.
