March 16, 2012 - 45 Giant Tortoise Babies



At Linton Zoo, Cambridgeshire (UK), 30 year old Kali has 45 babies. It sounds like they are from two clutches, hatched two months in a row. She is an African Spurred or Sulcata Giant Tortoise and the fun part is that they don't really know who the daddy is!

The sad part is that the babies won't all be able to stay together. Can't wait to see the pics from that family reunion!

Of course the babies can't all stay together. That would require a huge pot.

They look like a bunch of mushrooms.
