Tortoise on Its Back Gets Help From a Pal

If a tortoise falls on the back of its shell, it can have difficulty getting back onto its feet. Fortunately, this tortoise had some help from a wonderful friend.
In this YouTube video, spotted on Reddit in the aptly titled “Animals Being Bros,” a crowd of onlookers gasps and shouts as one tortoise helps another turn over on all fours. The tortoise is already down on its back when the video starts. The helpful pal spends a little less than a minute trying to roll over the tortoise. When the efforts are a success, the off-camera onlookers cheer.
