The Chelonoidis Hoodensis is a specific species of the tortoise which was on the verge of extinction fifty years ago. But then there was this massive tortoise who was taken from the San Diego Zoo to the Galápagos Islands in Española, hoping that it will breed. And surprisingly in the process, he has single-handedly fathered over 800 offsprings till date.

Fifty years ago there were only 2 males and 12 females alive of Diego's species, and they were not capable of reproducing. Then it was Diego who has done more than anything that a tortoise could do by taking this initiative. He has mated exceptionally well with the help of his six mates. He is a dominant male of the species.

Diego is a peculiar 'Casanova'.

Diego weighs about 175 pounds and is nearly 35 inches long. Every morning he slowly peeks his head out from his shell and then turns towards the leaves to have breakfast. He is totally a 'ladies man' as he shares his space with six females who are his mates in the process.

Diego is over 100 years old but is still the most sexually active male reproducer preventing his species from extinction on their native island in Española. He is housed in a breeding center on the Santa Cruz Island.

Way to go, Diego!

Way to go, Diego!

The scientists did a genetic study after their program of protecting this endangered species was almost done. Surprisingly, it was found that Diego was the father of nearly 40 percent of the offsprings that were released on Española. Due to Diego's tremendous contribution, the species is no longer facing extinction. Well done, Diego!
