    After 80 years in Captivity will the old tortoise have the skills to survive upon release?

    If 40% of them were gathered by the same tortoise, wouldn’t there be a huge percentage of inbreeding, and a further risk to the species?

    I’m so glad that after 10 plus negative Donald trump stories brut ran a heartwarming story. They haven’t stopped being useful politically
