At the Indira Gandhi Zoological Park in Visakhapatnam, I was intrigued by this reclusive Tortoise who seemed to have forged a great bond of friendship with the Squirrel. On closer inspection, the truth was revealed. This was a Tortoise made of cement intended for smaller live turtles to take shelter beneath it. Alas! This piggy-back ride would not ferry it anywhere.
