About this painting: Most people have heard of Lonesome George, the last giant tortoise his kind, but how many know about Super Diego is a giant tortoise who is largely responsible for bringing his own subspecies back from the brink of extinction. Super Diego is a 135 years old giant tortoise and 'mega-dad.' He is thought to be solely responsible for bringing the saddle-backed Espanola tortoise back from the brink of extinction after fathering an estimated 1,700 baby tortoises since being acquired by the Foundation in 1977




About this painting:
Galapagos Islands: I was lucky enough to see the world's most famous giant tortoise, Super Diego. This fertile and widely prolific saddle-back Espanola tortoise is credited with restoring his subspecies from the brink of extinction. He is thought to fathered 1,700 tortoises and he is still going strong.
