Makauwahi Cave Reserve Tortoises

Had we not gone on the tour, we might have missed the tortoises. Thankfully our tour guide clued us in that the tortoises are used to clear land so native plants can survive. They take the place of a bird that became extinct. And we got to see them!

There were about 20 of them and each one had its own pen. They were very pretty.

I loved the plating on their legs.

We walked past many of the pens.

There was also this beauty.

And we saw two different kinds of lizards. This one had a red throat.

And this blurry picture shows how well this one blended into its surroundings.
