Thoughtful Tortoise Flips His Brother Right Side Up

Tortoise Flipped

A thoughtful sulcata tortoise named Patton was very helpful in flipping over his testudinal brother Sherman, who had landed upside down after chasing after something that caught his interest. Patton just gave Sherman a gentle running nudge and all was right again.

Sherman and Patton are brothers, when Sherman tips over from climbing Patton generally comes over and flips him back over. They have incredible personalities!
