Comments

1. The Aldabra giant tortoise (Binomial Name: Aldabrachelys Gigantea), from the islands of the Aldabra Atoll in the Seychelles.
2. In  2018 Central Bank of Seychelles decided to change metal composition of 10 Rupee coin, as 2016-dated coins were not resistant for  high humidity and became corroded. New 2018 coin have different alloys in both center and ring.
