Lonesome George

08 Aug

You really can’t beat the BBC for their specials on wildlife and nature. I find this video interesting, although I think the narrator focused a bit too much on the evils of mankind and not enough on the animal himself. But take a look. George is the last of his subspecies and, while he has been crossbred with other, closely related kinds of Galapagos tortoise, the line effectively ends with him.
