Scientists Discover Rare Tortoise Thought To Be Extinct

The rare Galápagos Tortoise has been thought to be extinct since 1906! Investigators believe that there may be more members of the species on the island.

The one adult female located thus far has been transported to a breeding center for giant tortoises like her on Santa Cruz Island. The animal, which is thought to be well over 100 years old, will spend the foreseeable future in a pen specifically customized for her.
