Galapagos Giant Tortoise goes un-extinct

In a story that gives new meaning to the phrase ‘slow and steady wins the race,’ a giant tortoise long thought extinct appears to be still alive on one of the Galapagos Islands.
Scientists have determined that the tortoise subspecies Chelonoidis elephantopus, thought to have disappeared nearly 150 years ago, may roam the northern reaches of the island of Isabela, several miles from the tortoise’s native island, Floreana.
