Darwin research giant
Giant tortoises migrated from the South Americarn mainland. Unfortunately, they were almost wiped out by whaling ships and settlers to the Galapagos because they were a great source of food. There was also np water on the islands and the tortoises each have a bladder which stored several quarts of water. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_tortoise#Galapagos_giant_tortoises
