The tortoise’s game plan for that famous race against the hare doesn’t always come in handy.

You might not have thought of including a video of two tortoises having sex as part of your daily video-watching habits, but you have now. The voice of Sir David Attenborough isn’t there to walk us through it, but despite any noises and facial expressions that might raise an eyebrow, you can’t stop watching.

You may have already heard these noises, but this video still hit Reddit close to home. When one person asked why he even watched a video of two tortoises going at it, another responded, “Fuck it, why not?”
