It’s my birthday!

It’s also fun fact Friday!
so what better time to tell you about some very long lived animals!

The average human lives for 70 -80 years however that’s nothing compared to many other animals!

While some whales and crocodilians may live over 100 years!

The giant Galapagos tortoise lives up to 200 years! 
But the longest living vertebrate is the Greenland shark which lives for an amazing 400 years! Being extremely slow growing and living in the freezing waters of the Arctic means they don’t even become sexually mature until they are around 100 years old! 😱

If we look at invertebrates then it becomes even more crazy! Some sponges and corals live for 1000’s of years.... 🤯 mind blown!

The Galápagos appeared from out of nowhere, disconnected from all other landmasses. A ‘hotspot‘ explains the existence of the entire archipelago.
This remote archipelago is a land of lava formations, cactus forests, lush green highlands, turquoise and tropical beaches. But, best of all, it is overflowing with some of the most unique wildlife species on the planet. Within minutes of landing on this archipelago, you’ll come face-to-face with more fearless and curious animals than anywhere else on Earth.
We’ve been here for 10 days and we’ve seen so much just going around: blue-footed boobies, giant tortoises, marine iguana, sea lions, pelicans, rays, sharks and so much more. There’s still some kayaking tomorrow in Isabela Island . Can’t wait 💙

What is the climate like on the Galapagos Islands? ¿Cómo es la clima de las Islas Galápagos? (EN) The climate of the Galapagos Islands is strongly determined by prevailing oceanic currents and surface winds. For much of the year, the Humbolt Current dominates, bringing cool, relatively dry air from the south resulting in a cool, dry season between June and December. In January, the Humbolt Current weakens and the Cromwell and Panama Currents dominate bringing warm, humid air over the archipelago[AC1] , leading to a hot, wet season from January to May. (ES) La clima de las Islas Galápagos está afectado fuertamente por los vientos oceanicos y surfaciales. Durante la mayoría del año, el Corriente Humboldt domina y trae una temporada fría con aire seco del sur que resulta en una estación seca entre los meses de junio y diciembre. En enero el Corriente Humboldt se debilita y empiezan dominar los correintes de Cromwell y Panamá cuales traer el aire húmedo y templado sobre el archipiélago hasta mayo.

Galapagos giant tortoises. HUGE! 
To give some context to my Saffa mates, these are about twice as big as the Seychelles tortoises resident at the Vineyard Hotel #galapagos #galapagostortoise

Sooooo, a waze back, the, Three Jay’s Tortoise Sanctuary, was asked to do a photo shoot here by the great, @claire__rosen. We were of course super honored and totally set it up.  Claire, is an amazing Photographer and a true Artist. She has many unique artistic specialties, but in this case she wanted to photograph our Galapagos and Radiated Tortoises. Claire, has a series of photos of various animals sharing a formal meal. Some of my favorites are her pics of Elephants and Bears dining together on nicely set tables with fancy table cloths, dishes, candle sticks ect. This series is called, “FANTASTICAL FEASTS.” The Galaps destroyed the set pretty fast.  After the photo shoot, she edits and photoshops them a bit to make really interesting photos. Here is the On she just sent me with the Galaps. Definitely check her out if you have the time to see the rest in her, Fantastical Feasts, series. #clairerosenphotography #professionalphotographer #fantasticalfeasts #threejaystortoisesanctuary #galapagostortoise #tortoise #formaldining #fancyshmancy #artist #reptile

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, been taking a little bit of a break from social media stuff but wanted to post up the finished Galapagos/ Darwin themed painting. The original is already spoken for but planning on doing a really limited run of gilclee prints on velvet rag canvas paper for this one. Its a really big, 16x 30 so it’s a little pricier, it’ll be $90 plus shipping but I’m taking preorders until April 25 for $75 and I’ll start shipping May 1st! Details in my big cartel site in the link above, thanks as always for the support! 🙏 ps might also do a run of smaller watercolor prints too if there’s interest let me know in comments #galapagosislands #galapagostortoise #charlesdarwin #darwinsfinches

Did you even come to the Galapagos if you didn’t take your picture with a giant tortoise?? Fun Fact: They have no idea how old tortoises live because we haven’t studied them long enough but it is estimated to be over a 100 years!

Despite some Galapagos tortoises weighing nearly 600 lbs, did you know that they actually float in sea water? While you may think that they would actually sink because of their large shell, the shell is actually made up of honeycomb shaped air chambers that reduces the tortoise's density. Some scientists believe that some tortoises kept for food by whalers may have gotten dumped off of boats near Wolf Volcano and arrived to Isabela Island in Galapagos by floating on their backs with their long necks pointed straight up.

King penguins (Aptenodytes patagonicus) at sunrise on South Georgia Island, Southern Ocean.The king penguin is the second largest species of penguin at about 90 cm (3 ft) tall and weighing 11 to 16 kg (24 to 35 lb), second only to the emperor penguin. The total population is estimated to be 2.23 million pairs and is increasing. The king penguin was described in 1778 by English naturalist and illustrator John Frederick Miller.

I always tell people when they feed the elephants “don’t worry they can’t bite you, their teeth are so far back”...meanwhile today I kept dropping food so these rad dudes didn’t slice my finger off with their beak 🤣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or maybe I just had a photo with the statue and never really went in with the Galaps at all 🤨

Dragones en las islas. Galápago significa tortuga, es por ellos que los primeros en pisar estas tierras dan el nombre a las islas por sus gigantescos habitantes. 
Las tortugas galápagos son animales impresionantes por su tamaño y longevidad. Aquí la foto del detalle de su pata que puede soportar los casi 450kg que pueden llegar a pesar
