The Galápagos tortoise is the largest species of tortoise in the world. They are native to seven of the Galápagos Islands and the subtle variations between the species helped Charles Darwin formulate his theory of evolution. There are a large number of tortoises living in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island and this sound of two tortoises mating was captured in January of 2017.
