From the atricle:
"I don't know what kind of nerve, ferocity and stubbornness got 86-year-old Brendon Grimshaw to buy an island in the Indian Ocean, replant it with 16,000 trees, grasses and then lure a bunch of giant tortoises — big galumphing ones and itty-bitty ones — to live with him (one gets born in his bedroom). But he did it, and when he takes reporter Simon Reeve on a tour, he seems so shy and gentle. But I bet he's not. My guess is Brendon is next to impossible to live with, unless you're too big, too slow and too reptilian to care."
