An Explorer Interrupts Mating Tortoises, Slowest Chase Ever Ensues


tortoise chase

In this video from a Pristine Seas expedition to the Seychelles broadcast on National Geographic, expedition leader Paul Rose stumbles upon mating giant tortoises on Assumption Island – basically interrupting their fun. Nobody likes a cock-blocker and the clearly peeved male tortoise kicks off what is literally the slowest pursuit of Rose and a cameraman.

I really do feel for the guy (the tortoise) – all he was trying to do was have a bit of a shag in the meadow on a Saturday afternoon.

What a lag!

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...
