Our most popular male aldabra tortoise at our breeding program is undoubtedly Cowboy. Cowboy is just over 480 pounds and one of the most friendly and gentle giant aldabra tortoises we have ever known. Almost every customer and visitor gets a picture with Cowboy if possible. My photo archives involving Cowboy extend back over a decade and thought it would be proper for him to have his our thread. Cowboy is a keepers dream, hope everyone enjoys his pictures.

~ We have no exact history prior to 1932, his exact age is unknown.
I understand that. I really wanted to know how long ago was that picture taken? He looks much smaller then he looks now. Not sure if it's just the pic or if he was really that much smaller. Still big, yet smaller LOL
As for a real age, he was then born sometime before 1932. Very cool. You've had him how long now?
