Description

This is a large osteoderm from an extinct giant tortoise. The tortoises limbs were covered in hard osteoderms used for defense. The "groove" you see around the bottom of spurs and osteoderms is where they attached to the skin. This extinct tortoise was thought to be as large as the modern Galapagos Islands tortoise. It is believed to have been up to 6 feet in length and 600 lbs. Amazing!

Extinct Pleistocene Giant Tortoise - Hesperotestudo sp.
