The animal kingdom at its best.

These turtles have each other’s backs—literally.

According to the description, YouTube user AuDi Yi and his daughter were at the Taipei Zoo on a school trip when they spotted a tortoise on his back, helpless. Before a zookeeper could enter and flip him over, his tortoise bro stepped in to lend a hand. That’s what friends are for, right?

It’s a harrowing rescue, and the children watching it are on the edge of their seats.

The reptilian rescue occurred back in November, but it’s getting a second life after being posted on Reddit.
