This is Igloo, an aldabran tortoise who's 32 years old. Tortoises can live a very long time! Harriet, one of the oldest living tortoises, was 175-years-old when she passed away at the zoo a few years ago. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/5109342.stm
Here I'm giving Goliath a good rubbing all over. They stretch their necks way out and stand up nice 'n tall for a massage! He weighs about 300 pounds and is very gentle and friendly.
