I was visiting Haller Park in Mombasa with my family when I came across this giant Aldabra tortoise, which became an instant favourite of my two and a half year old daughter. She gave the giant tortoise a few cuddles. I realised, as I was very close to the creature, that its beak looked like it had teeth, so grabbed my camera and shot some portrait of the tortoise. I also took some wide angle shots of my daughter with her new best friend which became instant favourites of her grandparents!
