Crafty Tortoise Avoids Being Eaten By Lion Using Shell As Protection

A crafty tortoise managed to avoid being eaten by a lion by using its shell as protection.

Peet van Schalkwyk captured the moment whilst on safari in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa.

The tortoise can be seen trying to run from the hungry lions before going into his shell to hide.

Clearly desperate for a slow-moving snack, the persistent predators can be seen trying to break into the tortoise’s shell one by one.
