Tortoise v. Tomato (Video)

 

Kevin the baby sulcata tortoise takes a while to eat his favorite food because he has bad depth perception. As you can see, Kevin has a bit of trouble managing to grab the tomato right away, but once he grabs hold of the vegetable, he’s able to enjoy his meal!

Poor baby, I would have put it in his mouth for him. He would probably do better with a dish full of food. That way, if he missed one piece, he'd be sure to grab another. I hope he is pampered for all the days of his life.

hope little Kevin's eye/mouth coordination gets better as he grows up; dont want him to miss out on all that great food for him to eat :)

With each second, each time he misses, my heart breaks.

And yet the weird thing is that I also want to laugh. I sincerely hope that this innocent little turtle will be okay and is getting enough food. But at the same time he is trying so hard that it is adorable.

Please be okay turtle!

Avocados aren't the problem, right?

no bad dogs, just bad owners. behavior problems can be dealt with. it takes time, patience and som…

Another thing--does procreation always take place at night in an evolutionary sense?

Thank you for sharing the merits of this underutilized vegetable.
