Turtles and Tortoise are really weird scaly reptiles, but on the other hand very interesting. They move very slow, but their shell can protect them from any kind of threat. Did you know that their shell even inspired The Great Roman military, during seiges, soldiers would get in testudo formation, named after the Latin word for tortoise. The men formed rows and held shields in front or above them to completely shelter the unit.
But, Turtles have some big downfall, if ever flipped on its back side it’s nearly impossible to get right side up again. Well, that is just what happened to this tortoise, but luckily she had a smart friend to help her. The video was filmed by some guy and his daughter at the Taipei zoo. It is so amazing to see how this other tortoise pushed on until she turned her over. This is why is good to have many friends and that is what friends are for, to help you when you need it most.
