(TOP) Tortoise from a large, lushly vegetated island. Notice the dome shape of its shell.
(BOTTOM) Tortoise from a smaller, drier island. Trace the saddle-like shape of the shell and compare it to the tortoise with the dome shell. This tortoise can move its head much higher to get more inaccessible food. (Photos by Rob Otto, 2001)
