Who is bigger?
by: Shelly

It depends on which ones you are talking about.

The largest tortoise is the Galapagos. 5 feet and over 500 pounds.

The largest turtle is the leatherback. The largest on record was 10 feet and over 1500 pounds. More likely would be 6 feet and 1500 pounds.

Keep it slow and steady.
