Cheetah Gets Spooked Out By Tortoise Hiding In Its Shell

Two cheetahs have been filmed approaching a giant tortoise at a private game farm in South Africa.

Skyler and Zahra, two youngsters from the Running Wild Conservation programme, were on an outing as part of their reintroduction into the wild process, when they encountered the strange-looking reptile.

The cheetahs spent several minutes examining the animal, smelling it and pulling back with fright whenever the tortoise made a move from inside its shell.

The baffled look on their faces is hilarious.
