Did you know that the G.T. eats grass, greens, fruit, veggies and cactus? They also are the largest species of the tortoise in the world. 15,000 to 16,000 survive in the Galapagos Islands. To get warm, turtles come out of the water and into the sun.
There is also another turtle that I love to talk about., the G.A.R.T. (Giant Amazon River Turtle.) They eat fruit, flowers, roots and soft vegetation. The Yellow-Spotted A.R.T. eats plants, fallen fruits and grasses. They live in tropical lowlands in Northern South America.
