This is Dippy, the 45 year old Galapagos tortoise, giving one of his care takers some love. He appears to have no problem charming the ladies. 

According to a story on, Dippy got his first health check this week. Using a forklift and a scale borrowed from a local warehouse, he weighed in at 120 Kg (or about 264.5 pounds). 

Watch the story here and see this guy hamming it up for the camera. Clearly he’s not too shy around people or cameras 😀
