Lonesome George still a devout bachelor
Lonesome George, a giant Galapagos tortoise and mascot for conservation is the last of his kind. George has long chosen been a dedicated bachelor, even when given his chosen of female mates from a closely related species. Hopes rose last week when a hybrid tortoise was found last week, but unfortunately this animal is also male, so it has not changed the fact that George is unlikely to settle down and start a family anytime soon.
