Caught On Tape: Twin Baby Tortoises Being Born

If you do happen to be fortunate enough to see baby tortoises being born, or baby turtles being born, it’s best to let nature handle it. However, this extraordinary video called for the interference of people as the two baby tortoise twins being born are joined by their sac and are not able to separate.

Watch as the Garden Start Tortoise safely separates the twins.
