Tortoises definitely aren't known for their speed, but this hard-shelled fellow sure was quick to help out a friend in need!

When a smaller tortoise finds itself stuck between a rock in a hard place, unable to force itself off and onto the ground, a larger tortoise waddles over as fast as it can manage to nudge its friend to safety! It sure looked like the adorable slowpoke was in for an uphill battle, but luckily friendship comes in all shapes and sizes.

As silly and cumbersome as it looks, it's an adorable reminder that friends of all kinds, even in the animal kingdom, are looking out for one another!
