This video is the best of friendship and a reminder that not everyone’s there for you.

Hillary Squires went to the Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park in Alto last weekend and caught this act of friendship between two of the tortoises.

Somehow the one tortoise had fallen (and couldn’t get up!) and that’s when its friend came over and helped their tortoise friend back on its feet. Just like we all need from a good friend from time to time, someone who doesn't give up on us, even when it seems tough and hopeless.

And just like in life, you can see the other “upright” tortoise just in his own world, not caring about the struggle happening just inches away from him.  I purposely pronouned the non-helper, because I feel like that’s a dude thing to do... try to look over what’s happening because you think there’s food nearby.
