Giant tortoise runs over my camera (video)

The animals of the Galapagos are famous for being curious and not afraid of humans. Ivan and Brenda discovered this while visiting the highlands of Santa Cruz looking for giant tortoises. Instead the tortoise found them and heads straight for them to investigate.

Ivan leaves his camera in the grass and walks away. The tortoise approaches, curious to see what’s new. After staring at the shiny box for a while and determining that it is not edible (or at least less appetizing than the other options) it moves on. Its enormous body eclipses the camera’s view, and it almost crushes the camera with its feet.

Check out the action below.
