New Giant Tortoise For Oxfordshire

Darwin the giant tortoise has been donated to the Cotswold Wildlife Park by the Seychelles.

He's the first ever to be donated by the island's government to the UK.

It's part of a conservation project between the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens and the Cotswold Wildlife Park.

He's 25 years old, which is relatively young as the species can live for up to 150 years.

"We are delighted to welcome Darwin to the Cotswolds and to create links between the park and the Seychelles."
