Tortoise charges at man in botanical gardens to nip at his feet

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!"

See what happens in the video above.
