A wonderful capture of the big tortoise. Did they mention how old this guy might be?

Great job. Regards

Yep, it's still a youngster. I believe there is one in Australian waters over 140 years old

Thank you, Paul. The estimate for this tortoise is about 80 years old, and they can live past 100.


Paul Freeman Paul Freeman   {K:35606} 11/7/2014
