Daily Cute: Baby Tortoise Tries Really Hard to Eat a Tomato

Enjoy watching this baby tortoise try his hardest to eat a piece of tomato. It’s right in front of him, but it just takes a while to figure out where he should go to match up his mouth with the delicious food in front of him. Don’t worry, though, he gets there.

Check back daily for more adorable animal videos.

When I was a child I found a little orphan tortoise that fit inside a match box, he was that small. I remember this incoordination very well :)) Thanks for the cute video.

Baby tortoises are really very uncoordinated and it takes time for them to figure out how to actually target their food. They are definitely cute.

I love turtles! And, yes. It's like human babies learning to walk. Getting all the senses coordinated takes time and practice.
