Giant tortoise at Fuengirola’s Bioparc
Giant tortoise at Fuengirola’s Bioparc

IT may look like this tortoise has had a few too many mince pies and brandies, but this is actually his normal size.

The giant tortoise, which can be found at Fuengirola’s Bioparc, can grow up to 1.3 metres long and weigh as much as 400kg.

Cute? Maybe. A good Christmas dinner guest? Probably not.
