The place were we were staying had two giant African Spurred Tortoises in a pen along with 2 generations of offspring (about a dozen 4 inches across and another dozen two inches across and they explained that more eggs were under the sand). Apparently they reintroduce these offspring to the nearby Reserve de Fathala / Salome National Park.
