The Galápagos tortoise takes a midnight stroll on the beaches of the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador as our video elf Snowflake captures a photo of Santa Claus. Santa waves to his four legged friend that moves ever so slowly. Santa had been visiting Harriet the Tortoise for over 100 years now ever since she was a baby. He never misses a Christmas without saying hello to his friend. Do you have any friends you always want to see during the holidays?
Since the Galápagos Islands is on the equator they have 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness daily, the only other country that can say that is the Republic of Kenya in East Africa. Being on the equator also keeps the temperature the same so you can visit this natural wonder anytime of the year.
