Galaps

noun clipping
Something from the Galapagos islands such as Galapagos tortoises or finches. Can perhaps also be used to refer to the islands themselves.
 
“Wanna go feed the galaps with me?”
Etymology : Clipping of Galapagos “the islands” suggested to be named after the tortoises but there is no evidence the tortoises were ever called this before the islands.
