Galapagos Tortoise Pond The Galapagos Tortoise in this pond, covered with duck weed, is about 5' long. A tortoise can drink 8 gallons of water in 1 hour. When tortoises bring their head and legs into their shell, they hiss because they have to let air out of their lungs to make room! Rancho Permiso in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island.
