In Darwin's footsteps

These powerful slow giants not only carry the massive weight of their one and only life shelter; they also have the inner strength to climb the heavy slopes of volcanoes, driven by the reproduction instinct, laying eggs by the lava-heated grounds.

The paradox of such a robust 
animal, though completely 
defenceless to the least intruder to 
its ecosystem,

is the testimony of the extreme precision of the evolution and the great fragility of this equilibrium.
