The largest animal in its habitat, the giant tortoise plays a role similar to the elephants, creating pathways in its rigorous search for food that can be used by other animals. Tortoises can live in groups or on their own, but either way, these reptiles rest during the day after their search for food in the morning. Although stereotyped to be slow and cautious, tortoises are know for being speedy when tempted by a treat, being great swimmers and even being able to reach far by standing on their hind legs.
Tortoises have great defence against predators and danger as they can tuck themselves into their carapace to wait securely. On average, male giant turtles can be almost 4ft long and weigh over 500lbs.
