Aldabra Giant Tortoise

Habitat: Reptiles

Al and Tex are Zoo Knoxville’s oldest residents; Al is estimated to be more than 120 years old and Tex more than 80 years old. During the warm spring and summer months, they can be seen in Tortoise Territory—they’re hard to miss because they weigh several hundred pounds each.
