Lonesome George, the last remaining giant tortoise of his kind, may soon be a father - to the delight of conservationists.
Unhatched eggs have been found in his "bachelor" pen in the Galapagos Islands, his keepers said.
For decades, the last known Pinta island tortoise had shown little interest in reproducing. But at age 90, George is said to be in his sexual prime.....
