An Unboxing Video of a Man Unpacking His Pet Tortoise After Four Months of Hibernation in His Refrigerator

An unboxing video created by artist Neil Slorance shows him unpacking his pet tortoise Herman after four months of hibernation in a refrigerator. In the video, Slorance explains why letting Herman hibernate in a refrigerator is a safer option than letting him hibernate outdoors as the tortoise slowly wakes up.

Herman has appeared in some of Slorance’s work, including two comic strips about his hibernation.
