Video goodness: Determined tortoise helps to right a fellow tortoise that flipped onto its back

June 27, 2010 |  3:38 pm

We're forever in reader Lee B.'s debt for drawing our attention to this amazing demonstration of the goodness of animals.

We couldn't believe our eyes as one tortoise worked to help the other regain its footing. (We're a bit flummoxed as to why the person holding the video camera didn't just help the wrong-side-up tortoise him- or herself, but we're impressed by the video result, nonetheless.)

Helpful Tortoise may just be our new hero -- and Lee B., we owe you a plate of vegan cookies! (Note: We do not actually bake, so they might have to remain virtual vegan cookies. Sorry about that!)
