To all the animal lovers out here, here's some good news. A rare tortoise species thought to be extinct 100 years ago has been found in the Galapagos. I am amazed by seeing her large shell and the neck in contrast looks so tiny. Link provided below.
Conservationists in the Galapagos Islands have found a giant tortoise from a species thought to have become extinct more than a century ago.

Good news and some bad news? If they could find another and mate them if that was possible perhaps the species could be saved. Imagine living 100 years. What stories would you tell?
