Galapagos Tortoise

Galapagos Tortoise

Chelonoidis nigra

A hand-painted reptile made from high density, durable plastic.

The Galapagos tortoise leads a simple life: basking under the sun, chomping on leaves, grass, cactus, and can sleep for up to 16 hours a day. They keep their body temperature low by occasionally dipping in water, or taking mudbaths. Having a slow metabolism means that they can survive for up to a year without eating or drinking, obtaining moisture from the dew found on nearby vegetation.

Ages: 3+

Dimensions: 11cm x 6cm x 5cm
