Turtles Finally Go on Dates After Two Years

A love story about two Galapagos giant tortoises in Australia, Hugo and Estrella. After two years they finally met.

Giant turtle Estrella hails from Germany and moved to Hugos zoo this year, in Australia. She would actually be coming to Australia before. But corona kept not going through.


It was finally so far in June. But before Estrella got to join Hugo and the two were able to go on a date, Estrella had to quarantine first. At that time she regularly videotaped with fellow Hugo.

Now, three months later, the animals are finally together. And according to their caregiver, theyre very happy.

The Galapagos giant tortoise is an endangered species. Thats why the zoo hopes Hugo and Estrella will take care of young turtles.
