    Tortoise Practices Using Lego Wheel Prosthetic Limb, Hare Won’t Know What Hit It [Video]

    Sometimes you just have a rough day. That's something Kevin, a baby sulcata tortoise, can attest to; one of his rough days was caught on film. As you can see, he doesn't have the best depth perception and he really, really wants a bite of that tomato, but can't quite pull it off. Lucky for him, the tomato isn't savvy enough to run away and the lady holding it really just wants Kevin to succeed. Next time you feel like you just can't do anything right, remember to tell yourself, "At least I can eat a tomato."
