Cincinnati Zoo introduces Galapagos tortoise exhibit

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Zoo is proud to announce that seven, four-year-old Galapagos tortoises will be introduced to their new outdoor exhibit on Thursday.

The exhibit was funded in part by the generous support of Thomas C. Theobold and the Theobold Family in memory of the late Dr. Jerome (Jerry) Theobold, the Zoo's first staff veterinarian.

This is the Zoo's first walk-through reptile display.

To date, there are only eleven Galapagos tortoises left in the world.
