Watch a tortoise slowly, slowly chase off a man who interrupted him mating

The animal kingdom-equivalent of your mate walking in on you getting the ride.

NO ONE LIKES being caught in a compromising position. Not even tortoises.

While visiting Assumption Island (north of Madagascar), National Geographic explorer Paul Rose found two giant tortoises going at it.

Look at them having a little kiss:


Rose watched for a little while, remarking on how “beautiful” it was to see a couple of tortoises mating, until the male tortoise spotted the camera crew and made a beeline straight for them.

“Alright bruv, what you want?”


What follows is an extremely slow chase, with the tortoise hell bent on making Rose pay for interrupting his mating session.
