Reptile Park Gosford NSW

Closeup of Galapagos Tortoise at the Reptile Park. Galapagos tortoises may reach a maximum shell length of over a metre and weigh up to 180 kg in weight. There are some 14 distinct subspecies inhabiting different islands in the Galapagos Island archipelago. The shape of the shell varies quite markedly between the subspecies. Some are domed, some are flat, others have a raised area above the neck. The latter feature is thought to be an adaptation to allow the tortoises to browse on the lower branches of trees and shrubs. The colour of the shell is dark greyish-brown. They have large, strong legs and are quite capable of climbing over quite large rocks.
