Who said tortoises are slow?
This clip, filmed in the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town, South Africa shows the moment a tortoise charges at a man to nip at his toes.
The man at the centre of the unlikely attack said: "I had this tortoise come charging at me from 50-metres-away."
"To my surprise, it started to charge my foot. Some people have said it looks like I kicked it when it eventually bit me, but I can assure you that's not the case."
"When it bit me I pulled my foot away and the tortoise was still attached to my shoe. No tortoises were harmed in the making of this video!"
