Living for centuries and helping Darwin develop his theory of evolution, the Galapagos giant tortoise are massive reptiles. The largest of the subspecies can reach up to 400kg. Rare these days due to habitat destruction and human exploitation these gentle giants are great ambassadors for #worldturtleday

Loggerhead turtle for #worldturtleday and photos taken a few years back at a small turtle rehabilitation centre in Fuerteventura. It was amazing to see them up close, they are such beautiful, gentle creatures.

Happy #WorldTurtleDay! Many species of turtles around the world are threatened with extinction due to over exploitation for food and pets and increasing habitat destruction and need much more conservation attention. I found this remarkable baby Big-headed Turtle (Platysternon megacephalum) during a biodiversity survey in Hong Kong.
