This Tortoise is doing his best to beak an age-old stereotype, and actually, he is doing a pretty good job of it trying to chase down a Pit Bull!
We have all heard of the old but still popular fairy tale of ‘The Tortoise and The Hare.’ How the hare was so much faster than the tortoise but the tortoise through slow and methodical persistence still won the race.
Well, now I’m not so sure the tortoise was actually that slow. After watching the video below I’m beginning to think that the hare may have underestimated the tortoises speed a little.
You can watch the video of this speedy tortoise right here:
Sheldon is an 8-year-old sulfate tortoise, and Dolly is a 3-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier. The two were both rescued from the Humane Society of North Texas and their new family says they love each other and love to play chase as you’ll see in the video.
I was expecting it to be Dolly doing the chasing, but it’s in fact, Sheldon! Sheldon’s a lot speedier than I would have thought too.
