Description

Large red-footed tortoise directly in the middle of a shady portion of the trail from Flamands to Colombier Beach. Quite tame and un afraid. Judging from its response to humans, it may have been fed by hikers and tourists at some point as it seemed almost "expectant". About the size of a very over-sized American football.
