The lady who took the video managed to catch up with the man and made comments on the adorable sight.
“Hello, uncle. This is so cute,” she says and proceeds to ask the age of the tortoise.
“It is 11 years old,” answers the uncle.
This is not the first time that netizens have witnessed a man casually strolling down the street with their pet tortoise. A similar footage was shown in Japan and has slowly become the latest trend.
Netizens were amused by the sight and flooded the comment section with their thoughts.
“Actually, it was the tortoise who is the uncle’s owner,” one Twitter user stated. Another one replied, “Nope. Actually, it was the tortoise who challenged the uncle to a race.”
A netizen joked the tortoise is just one year away from becoming a teenager. So that it can learn kung fu and become a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
