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!

I am sorry but every time I watch this I become annoyed. That person sees he is having difficulty--and should be helping him by aiming for his mouth when he lunges for the tomato. Poor little fellow could starve!

so sweet, why didn't the person just hold the tomato up a little higher for Kevin. Love it anyway

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.

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!
