They’re not exactly the most exciting pets. Unlike dogs or cats, tortoises probably won’t move much or acknowledge you all that often. They’ll eat, sleep, and sometimes they’ll move at a slow pace. But when mushmouth26 went to check on Cheeto, a Leopard Tortoise, it turned into the unordinary.

What this owner probably didn’t expect to see was that she made a new friend.

The commute must be really slow for this snail if it’s catching a ride on a tortoise.
