A randy tortoise which is over 100 years old has single-handedly saved his species from extinction by going on a mad sexing spree.

Diego has fathered 800 babies over the years, and it’s thanks to him that his species on the island on Espanola in the Galapagos islands is still around today.
Tortoise preservation specialist Washington Tapia says:
He’s a very sexually active male reproducer. He’s contributed enormously to repopulating the island.
Diego is a Chelonoidis hoodensis, a species of Galapagos tortoise found in the wild only on Espanola. There were only two males and 12 females on the island 50 years ago before Diego got to work.
Diego now lives at a tortoise breeding centre on nearby Santa Cruz island where he’s shacked up and mating with his harem of six females.
Big up Diego for all the work he’s put in. He’s like the tortoise version of Simon Watson from Luton who also has 800 kids, except Diego’s literally saved an entire species whereas Simon’s been selling his spunk for cash for the last 16 years and has £40,000 to show for it. Diego’s not in it for the money though, he’s just out there saving his species one shag at a time. Keep doing your thing, Diego.
