I won't pretend to have seen thousands of tortoises in my life, but I can safely say this is biggest tortoise I've ever seen.  

Take a look at these photos, courtesy of the Associated Press, of a massive Galapagos tortoise getting a health check.  The animal is so big four people carry it and it needs industrial-strength scales to be weighed. 

Now that's a big tortoise.
