According to wikipedia and some reptile websites. I know that Galapagos is the largest tortoise, but I dont know how big and weight of the biggest one which ever known. I read somewhere that it will be about 1,2meters ( 4ft ) and weight over 300kg (661 lb). but it seems that this one is way bigger.

Ian the largest Galapagos tortoise that I have heard of was Goliath. He lived in Florida and before he died, weights of between 900 and 1,028 pounds have been attributed to him. The highest weight I think for him was 911 pounds. :)
