An extension area to the giant tortoise exhibit at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire has prompted keepers to develop a new training programme to help bring these slow moving creatures indoors quicker while they renovate.
In an attempt to ensure it is not just the hare the tortoise can defeat, zookeepers have given them a training programme to make sure they move back in quicker.
It follows a planned extension of the animal's indoor and outdoor facilities.
Zookeepers also say the regime has proved beneficial for health checks.
Twycross Zoo cares for three Aldabra tortoises: Tim aged 40, Shelly 30 and Speedy aged 70.
