They don’t come much cuter than a tortoise, we know that to be true. Their slow waddles, clunky shells and little wrinkly faces make them such lovable creatures.
Tortoises aren’t just cute little house pets, oh no, they’ve evolved to help defend themselves against predators thanks to their tough exteriors. Tortoises can hide away in their shells like little tanks.
But they do have a flaw, no it’s not their speed, though that can be a problem. It’s that occasionally they can be tipped over which renders them useless. Once they’re on their back, it becomes unbelievably hard to try and turn themselves back over.
In the video below, one of the resident tortoises at the Taiwan Zoo spotted another in trouble and (very slowly) rushes to the scene to help. Thinking quickly, the tortoise hatched a plan to help the other get back on its feet while a crowd of onlookers cheer and hope they can both get back to their daily routines.
Don’t forget to watch this adorable and smart tortoise help turn over his struggling friend in the video below. Also, at Happiest we love hearing all of your opinions. So please let us know what you thought of the article in the comment section below. 🐝
