Question is how did he get upside down, and why didn't the filmer turn him upright right a way? When some species of tortoise fight, their goal is to flip the other. Tortoise has higher shells which make it hard to get tract to flip upright. if they cannot right themselves they will eventually die (mostly from heat stroke, etc).

Humans "think" animals are unthinking, uncaring beings without souls or high level thought. WRONG! Most animals would make better people than the humans I have known!
This was beautiful!
