Tortoise Figures Out How to Open Door
Jeffrey the tortoise was tired of being outside. He wanted to go inside, where the temperature is consistent, the snacks are abundant, and he can hang with his human friends.
Jeffrey was faced with only one option: he had to open the door himself. And he did, albeit very slowly. But we bet Jeffrey's used to that. (Via mashable)
The lifespan of an African spurred tortoise is about 50–150 years, though they can live much longer. Tortoises are pretty smart — they can live to be super old, they're loyal friends and clearly they're super smart. But apparently they're also kinda rude because Jeffrey does NOT bother to close the door behind him.
The giant tortoise has an armored shell for protection, but it also has a couple of other features that correlate with long life.
