Tortoises live very slow lives. They're never in a hurry for anything except when they spring into action to help friends who have somehow ended up on their back!

While on a trip to the Taipei Zoo in Taiwan with his daughter, this YouTube user filmed an amazing event that happened between two tortoises. Somehow one of the tortoises ended up on its back and wasn't able to flip back over. While he was struggling on his back, a second tortoise in the enclosure was sizing up the situation.

This friend came to the rescue by ramming his upside down friend with the side of his shell. Kids were screaming and cheering on this act of heroism, and it worked! The upside down friend was quickly righted up and the pair end up walking off!

A true sign of friendship and helping out others when they are truly in need.
