The 17 found tortoises were all hybrids, so technically George was still the last known pure Pinta tortoise.

Of course, but some of them are very young and probably they will have an ancestor alive.
BTW, have you read about how a Pinta Island tortoise arrived to another island? probably it was at XIX century with sailors who moved it!:

I think it's not a special edition. We all can buy it.

Good choice and a very nice model indeed!
Christophe already brought the good news that i already knew to, on the Isabella island lives the same sub-species, so it is not extinct yet... Cool
