Journey with us to Discover Galapagos...
||"It appears to me that nothing
can be more improving to a young naturalist than a journey in distant
"The tortoise is very fond of water,
drinking large quantities, and wallowing in the mud. The larger
islands alone possess springs, and these are always situated
towards the central parts, and at a considerable height. The
tortoises, therefore, which frequent the lower districts, when
thirsty, are obliged to travel from a long distance. Hence broad
and well-beaten paths branch off in every direction from the
wells down to the sea-coast; and the Spaniards by following them
up, first discovered the watering-places."
Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle
Galapagos Giant Tortoise may be seen at the Charles
Darwin Research Station in Puerto Ayora and at El
Chato in the highlands of Santa Cruz, at the
Tortoise Reserve on San Cristobal Island and at
Sierra Negra Volcano on southern Isabela Island.
