Aldabra giant tortoise

FIELD MARKS-The carapace is a brown or tan color with a high domed shape. It has stocky, heavily scaled legs to support its heavy body. The neck of the Aldabra giant tortoise is very long, even for its great size, which helps the animal to exploit tree branches up to a meter from the ground as a food source. The average weight of a male is around 250 kilograms 550 lb
