Giant tortoises are large and can weigh over 400 kg. Like the giant tortoise from Schleich Wild Life, they have short but powerful legs that they use to move around in the search for fresh grass and herbs. The reptiles can reach an impressive age and often live more than 100 years in the wild.

FUN FACT

When they are in danger the giant tortoises pull their head and legs back into their shell.
