The tortoises of the Botanical Garden
TORTOISES
The two tortoises of the Botanical Garden in Papeari are among the biggest living tortoises. Each weighs around 200 kg, is 1.50 m long and move at 3 km/h. They are herbivorous animals that feed on leaves, grass and fruits. They have a very good sense of smell and they smell their food before eating it. The tortoises were offered in 1928 to Charles Nordhoff by the Governor of Pennsylvania, Mr. Pinchot. For almost 90 years now, these peaceful animals have quietly got old in their enclosure, making the joy of visitors, big and small alike!

Horses from the Marquesas
HORSES
It seems that the Spanish, who were in transit in the 16th century, left, on purpose or not, some horses in the vast swathes of land of the archipelago. Those horses then mixed with horses bought in Chile in 1840 by Dupetit-Thouars, thus almost forming a race of small nervous horses, which are well suited for the terrain of these marvellous islands.
They were first used as drought power and ploughing animals. Today they live freely on almost every island of the archipelago. After being captured, they take part in events, especially in bareback horse races. They are now an integral part of the Polynesian heritage.
