New giant tortoise species discovered on Galapagos Islands

Scientists say a new species of giant tortoise has been discovered on the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador.

There are only about 250 of the newly identified species, which have been given the scientific name Chelonoidis donfaustoi.

The Galapagos National Park released video of the new species on Wednesday, but the images were filmed in August.
