Title: Photos from Isabela - and finally, the tortoises

We couldn't not put up pictures of the tortoises - there were more here than on any of the other islands. The captive breeding program in Isabela is very successful.....
 
The very small ones .....
 
..... the bigger ones .....
 
...... the much bigger ones .......
 
... and some very much bigger!
 
Saddle-backed tortoises - they came close to extinction before this breeding programme started.
 
Feeding time - they literally had their noses in the trough.
