Galapagos News: Lonesome George could have offspring
After 36 years of exhaustive efforts, "Lonesome George", the last survivor of the Pinta Island giant tortoise species (Geochelone abigdoni) would be able to reproduce. Park rangers in charge of the "Fausto Llerena" Captive Breeding Center found a nest with eggs laid by one of the two Wolf Volcano females that have shared a pen with him since 1993. Out of nine eggs laid, only three were intact. These were placed in incubators, at different temperatures to obtain 2 females and 1 male. There will be a wait of 120 to 130 days before it is known if the eggs are fertile and George will have offspring. * Source: Communication Process - Galapagos National Park
