The weight of the turtle is 400 kg and a length of 1.8 m.
These turtles feed on plants and fruits, especially exotic plants on these islands.
It should be noted that this type of turtle was recently discovered in 2015 and is considered the largest species of turtles that has the longest age since it lives more than 100 years.
Some cases died at the age of 170
