BFFs: Tortoise Flips His Upside-Down Friend Back Over

December 16, 2014


This is a short video of a tortoise flipping its upside-down friend back over while children cheer them on in the background. So, what's the ruling -- did the tortoise actually know what he was doing? I mean, it certainly SEEMED deliberate. But maybe he was just trying to start a fight. Or -- OR -- maybe the other turtle is his lover and he isn't into kinky, upside-down sex. When reached for comment about the possibility, everyone's favorite professional tortoise and turtle-liker Zombie Jonathan wasn't sure what kinky, upside-down sex is. That's probably for the best.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Christian, who wants to know how the hell that turtle ended up on its back in the first place. Some sort of super low-speed accident?

    IT'S A TORTOISE! Not a turtle. Why do Americans call tortoises turtles? This shouldn't drive me as nuts as it does.

    Wow. I'm an American and I know the difference between Desert Tortoises and Sea Turtles. Hopefully, I've restored your faith in a 300 million person population. :)

    noun, plural turtles (especially collectively) turtle.
    any reptile of the order Testudines, comprising aquatic and terrestrialspecies having the trunk enclosed in a shell consisting of a dorsalcarapace and a ventral plastron.

    Same order, different family. NOT the same. Humans are in the Primate order, in the Great Ape family in the sub family of Homo. Calling tortoises turtles is like calling humans gorillas, we might be in the same order, we may even be in the same family, we are not the same species and the same goes for turtles and tortoises.
