The largest mainland tortoise!
The African spurred tortoise is Africa’s biggest
tortoise: the males can weigh up to 100 kg. It is
also the one found in the most arid regions and
which digs the longest burrows: the tunnels can
reach up to 15 metres in length!
You can observe it from May to October (depending on the weather!) In a park shared with dwarf goats. Don’t worry if you see one of them on its back: it stands up on its own!
