This cutie ambled over to say hello when we stopped by his enclosure. He looked up at us and actually studied us for a while. Not sure if he thought we were going to feed him but there was a very large pile of veggies not too far away, so maybe he was just being friendly.
Honolulu Zoo has been home to Spur-thighed tortoises since 1990. In the following four years almost 200 babies hatched here. These active reptiles are native to Africa.
