Tortoise race

Video of tortoises running around went viral on Twitter. One post was viewed over 10 million times in fifteen hours – and there are many posts about this video.

Tortoises can be quite fast: a leather-back sea turtle can run about 35 km per hour (21,75 mph). However, a group of tortoises running fast in a race is not very likely.

People who posted the video did not mention the source or context, which usually helps to find the facts. The source is a digital artist Vernon James Manlapaz on Instagram. It is clear that this viral video is a CG/VFX artwork. Original Instagram post below:
