She’s a beautiful Mama Tortoise. Incredible and amazing to realise the age of the mother.
African tortoises are known as one of the hardiest creatures. They live for over a century, usually between 50 and 150 years.
The oldest CURRENTLY living is a species of Aldabra Tortoise named Jonathan who was hatched in 1832. He turns 190 this year. Alagba, in Nigeria, is said to have lived to be approximately 344 years old.
Animals are amazing. This 150 year old tortoise with her 4 day old babies is an image of indescribable beauty.115 days later, 8 tortoises weighing 0.05 pounds and measuring 0.18 were born in Hungary.
They were much smaller than their mother. They were born in the zoo and were one of a kind.
The little tortoise sat on their mother’s back to enjoy the rays of the sun.It’s amazing that the baby turtles know to ride on Mom!
This is one of the largest tortoises in Africa, and her children. They look charming. She’s at her prime for having hatchlings.
Absolutely amazing what mother nature can do!!!
