This playboy tortoise had so much sex he saved his entire species. Now he's going home

By Rob Picheta, CNN

A womanizing tortoise whose rampant sex life may have single-handedly saved his entire species from extinction has retired from his playboy lifestyle, returning to the wild with his mission accomplished.
Diego's unstoppable libido was credited as a major reason for the survival of his fellow giant tortoises on Espanola, part of the Galapagos Islands, after being shipped over from the San Diego Zoo as part of a breeding program.
When he started his campaign of promiscuity, there were just two males and 12 females of his species alive on the island.
But the desirable shell-dweller had so much sex he helped boost the population to over 2,000. The Galapagos National Parks service believe the 100-year-old tortoise is the patriarch of around 40% of that population.

"He's contributed a large percentage to the lineage that we are returning to Espanola," Jorge Carrion, the park's director, told AFP. "There's a feeling of happiness to have the possibility of returning that tortoise to his natural state."

A total of 15 tortoises took part in the breeding program to boost the island's population, but none played a big a role as Diego.
"About 1,800 tortoises have been returned to Espanola and now with natural reproduction we have approximately 2,000 tortoises," Carrion told AFP.

"This shows that they are able to grow, they are able to reproduce, they are able to develop," he said.
The Galapagos Islands are one of the world's premier destinations for wildlife viewing, and were visited by Charles Darwin as he worked on the theory of evolution.

Good for you, Diego! You are a modern day hero that all goons can look up to and I hope that you enjoy your well earned rest from all of your sex... though I can't help what you'll get up to in retirement with your new reputation...

Of course, it doesn't make sense to pay more, so you can just by two cat harnesses and use one of them for sex.




That's not going to help with saving his species!

It can't be good for a species for 40% of all members to be descended from a single one right? How long before we get a Charles III tortoise?

From what I've heard it's not so bad as long as you have a rigorous breeding program, and anyway, without a monarchy to sustain it, serious inbreeding tends to self-regulate.

I'd like to study their population genetics going forward.

Also, are these the really delicious sea turtles? I'd like those to be back on the menu. I had some last time I was in Panama and it tasted awesome. Felt pretty bad about it though.

That news article is written poorly.

So Diego was a tortoise in a zoo and then shipped to island to gently caress? And then they left him there to gently caress forever?
