Tortoise gives toy truck a run for its money (VIDEO)

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

Watch out, hare! This truck-chasing tortoise is pretty darn fast

Tortoises get a bad rap for being sluggish, but this little guy obliterates that notion. He's got some serious get-up-and-go.

When a toy truck drives by, he doesn't just take a mild interest, he full-on sprints after it. If you ever wondered what a running tortoise might look like, take a long gander, my friends. This speedy terrapin is the picture of agility as he zooms after the remote-controlled truck.

The timing is interesting, too. After all, the newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie did just hit theaters. Don't you think this fleet-footed fellow would make a nice addition to Splinter's gang of crime-fighting terrapins?

At the very least, he's earned a slice of pizza.
