This dog is too lazy to walk where he needs to go, so he gets out his smartphone, opens up Uber, and requests a ride. At least that how we like to think this video went down. And like some Uber drivers we’ve had, the tortoise seems to have no idea where he’s going.
National Geographic caught up with a giant Amazon river turtle in South America, and strapped a camera to its back. Let’s go for a ride with this majestic, endangered beast as it interacts with others of its species.

Its Friday, so why are we being so serious? How about something a little lighter, like this video of a kitten riding on the back of a turtle, set to the tune of “Baby Elephant Walk.” Awww. (Thanks, Kevin!)
What happens when you strap a waterproof digital camcorder to the back of a turtle? 2 minutes, 4 seconds of pure awesome, that’s what. And we thought turtles lived slow, boring lives.
