Lion Gets Bullied By a Cheeky Tortoise

Tortoise in the savannah boasts a unique adaptation that sets them apart from the rest of the animal kingdom: their remarkable shells.

These shells, made of bone and keratin, offer unparalleled protection from predators and the harsh elements.

They retreat into their shells when danger approaches, rendering them nearly invulnerable to threats.
