The creature is surrounded by ferns, which are also native to the island.
In fact, around 100 fern species call the Galapagos home.
Galapagos tortoises are named after their homeland and are native to the region.
They are the largest living species of tortoise, with some modern Galapagos tortoises weighing as much as 417kg (919lb).
Today four species are extinct and only 10 percent of the original number remain.
However, it is thought that there are currently 20,000–25,000 wild tortoises living on the islands today.
There are also a number of initiatives working to help restore tortoise populations throughout the archipelago.
