An 86-year-old Yorkshire man, Brendon Grimshaw may have lived alone for many years on the tiny island paradise of Moyenne in the Seychelles in the middle of the Indian Ocean since he bought it in 1962 for £8000, but he is rarely lonely.
For Brendon has spent the years reintroducing the indigenous giant tortoise to Moyenne and now shares the island with 120 of the magnificent creatures, on one of the world's smallest national parks.
I got to feed an aldabra giant tortoise last week. It was pretty awesome. Giant doesn't do them justice. Giant makes you think BIG. They should be named holy-shit-look-at-the-size-of-that tortoises.
You can watch the entire documentary for free (legitimately), although you can make a donation:
The only problem is it is only distributed by Torrent...
After 20 years in corporate hell with another 20 ahead of me, living on that little island with nothing but tortoises for company looks more attractive than you can imagine.
