Pictures of giant tortoises/giant turtles. Specifically, these are the Aldabra Giant Tortoise (Geochelone gigantea).

These turtles are native to islands of the Aldabra Atoll in the Seychelles, though these pictures were taken at Southwick's Zoo in Massachusetts and in the Osaka Zoo in Japan. They typically grow to about four feet in length, and weigh about 550 pounds.
