Galápagos Tortoise in addition to infant
A Galápagos tortoise dwarfs her baby in this photo released in October by the Taronga Western Plains Zoo in New South Wales, Australia.
The hatchling weighs roughly 3 ounces (87 grams) at birth. It will take 30 ears for the baby to reach a similar girth as its mother—a huge 564 pounds (256 kilograms).
Galápagos tortoises are the longest-lived of all vertebrates, with regular lifespans of more than a hundred years.
