Galapagos Giant Tortoise – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Galapagos Tortoise:

The Galapagos Tortoise is the largest living tortoise on earth. It is native to seven islands of the Galapagos archipelago. A fully grown tortoise can weigh almost 700 pounds and measure 4 feet long. These reptiles are very long-lived with a life expectancy in the wild estimated to be over 150 years. 2 of the 12 subspecies of the giants are now extinct. Until recently it was thought that some other species may pass into extinction, but thanks to conservation efforts and captive breeding programs many of these tortoises are slowly creeping back to stable populations.

Pinta Island Tortoise – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Pinta Island Tortoise:

The Pinta Island Tortoise also called the Pinta giant tortoise, and Abingdon Island tortoise is an extinct subspecies of Galápagos tortoise. It was found only on Pinta Island in the Galapagos Islands. The subspecies was described by Albert Günther in 1877 after specimens arrived in London. By the end of the 19th century, most of the Pinta Island tortoises had been wiped out due to hunting. By the mid-20th century, it was assumed that the subspecies was extinct until a single male was discovered on the island in 1971. Efforts were made to mate the male, named Lonesome George, with other subspecies, but no viable eggs were produced. Lonesome George died on 24 June 2012 and the subspecies was believed to have become extinct with the death of Lonesome George. However, 17 first-generation hybrids have been found at Wolf Volcano on Isabela Island during a recent trip by Yale University researchers. As these specimens are juveniles, their parents may still be alive.
