Tortoise species believed to be extinct found on Galapagos Island

Tortoise species believed to be extinct found on Galapagos Island

A living member of a tortoise species not seen in more than 110 years and feared to be extinct has been spotted in a remote part of the Galapagos island of Fernandina. An investigating team has taken the tortoise, likely more than 100 years old, to a breeding center for giant tortoises on Santa Cruz Island. The only other living member of the species was found in 1906.

It has mastered the ability to move so incredibly slow that it has become invisible to the naked eye... “Hi, Drax”

They capture this tortoise to take to a breeding program. So now it's mate that it probably has in the area is abandoned and will go extinct. Hmmm..

He probably had a mate that they left behind.

I hope the stress from the move doesn't kill it. Anyway, won't the breeding center only probably produce infertile half-breeds? It would probably have been better to leave it be.
