    Those look like Aldabras, not galops, but beautiful nonetheless.

    Wow, what amazing tortoises! They are actually aldabras like Sarah said. You can tell because they have a pointy nose and the shell is often lighter in color. They are my absolute favorite species of tortoise! Thanks for posting! I am still saving up for one. One/tenth of the way there!;)

    currently we do not have any Galapagos tortoises in any german Zoo.
    Decades ago, zoo Stuttgart had some, but since Long times they live (and breed!!) in Zoo Z├╝rich, Swizerland.
