The Indian Star tortoise babies. They were having quite the day. Yes, that’s three of them on their backs. Nice.

Adorable! Nothing cliche here, just life going along as it usually does! How fortunate you are!

Lovely vids – do they just keep walking until they hit something?
April 4, 2012 at 2:32 pm
They do. And then they walk over it!

What the heck? The background noise in the 2nd video made me really laugh! Cute little guys. Very nice post.
It’s one of the suggested tunes that Youtube offers. It made me laugh, too!

Oh, come ON!! You didn’t play into my zoo-workers-writing-techno-midi-while-on-bosses’-time theory? The fact that it’s a “suggested tune” just makes it even funnier.

Reblogged this on dirt n kids and commented:
Dag nabbit if I’m just too busy to post anything my own life, so again, I find myself stealing (reblogging?) content from others. These cute little tortoises are just sweet not to share with the world. And just what the heck is going on in the background of that 2nd video is? Video games? At the zoo? I can only guess. Too funny.

Thanks so much for the video from a reptile lover.
You’re so welcome! Stay tuned for Friday’s post!

Ooo…hope it’s more of the reptilian variety. Can’t wait. After more than a year of drought (and zero water in the creek) I posted a pic of our newest regular gator today. She’s so pretty!

This is just too cute!!
April 4, 2012 at 2:35 pm
It is. Ridiculously so. I get so little done because I spend way too much time watching them!
April 4, 2012 at 2:46 pm
Very good videos, they are amazing little creatures, just so cute.
April 5, 2012 at 2:09 pm
They really are!
April 4, 2012 at 10:16 pm
Awesome. Made my night.
I’m so glad! I love sharing them!

Hey, I guess that even tortoises aren’t born knowing how to walk like tortoises, and as babies, they just gotta learn how, like lots of babies do – I know that when I was a baby that I spent lots of time rolling around on my back too. Hmm… I just had a joke come to me, and it’s a good one, but this is just sooo NOT the place to use it. Lol – a rare attack of common sense for me!

What’s funny is that if they were in the wild, it would be easier on them if they did get flipped. There would be rocks or plants to pull themselves over with. One of the little guys just gives up after a few minutes.

At least they aren’t wearing the lampshades on their heads in the picture. Apparently, you can take the tortoise outta the frat house, but….

I know. Poor little nutty things!
