“This is a completely unexpected behavior and has never been seen in wild turtles before. A giant tortoise chasing a chick along the log killed it and ate it. It was a very slow encounter, the turtle was moving at a normal slow pace - the whole interaction lasted seven minutes and was quite awful, "said Justin Gerlach, director of research at Peterhouse and an affiliated researcher at the University of Cambridge Zoological Museum.

This species of turtle is considered a vegetarian, previously they were spotted eating carrion, as well as the bones and shells of snails for calcium.

This place is located high above sea level and from there a magnificent view of the ocean is surrounded by green mountains.

Kenvin House is another architectural landmark in the capital of Victoria, which emphasizes the colonial style and elegant beauty of the buildings of this small capital. It was built in the 1850s and has long been a residential home for Dr. Henry Brooks (1831-1920), which the Seychelles remembered for their heroic deeds: saving the life of a 42-year-old Italian priest, father Jeremy, from the rubble of dirt and debris that came down from Mount Three Brothers, a mudflow avalanche, and preventing the spread of smallpox brought in by a passenger from East A In 1880, the Eastern Telegraph Company, laying a cable connection between Seychelles and Zanzibar, bought a house from a doctor and made it a residence for its engineers and managers. Kenwyn got his name from the name of a village in Cornwall, in the south-west of England where the telegraph cables came from. Due to weather conditions, humid climate and termites, the house began to collapse by the end of the 1990s. In 2004, the South African company took up the restoration of the building. Only the ceiling beams remained from the original material, rafters, racks, entrance doors and floorboards (they were made of casuarine wood, resistant to termite destruction). As a result, the house turned out to be a complete copy of the former. Currently, Diamond SA jewelry store is located inside, where collections of products with diamonds and tanzanites and art a gallery where you can see the Coco

Demer collection, sculptures and paintings by local artists. There is a fountain in the small kindergarten on the right side of the house. I enjoyed it a lot, but the most amazing beauty is unconditional but, the house itself!
