This morning during the excursion to the giant tortoises reserve where we can find these wonderful creatures, we found one of them particularly curious on what was going on around it.
While the rest of the guests were walking following the naturalist guide, there was a lady that decided to get closer to this gigantic animal and waited patiently for its reaction.
