An unlikely tale about a lion and a tortoise in the Lower Zambezi, Zambia

A lion entertains itself with a little tortoise. Each time the lion would drift off to sleep the tortoise would attempt a slow getaway, only to be ‘pawed’ back. Later that day guests and guides went back to the scene to see the fate of the little tortoise and were happy to see him in fine condition and lion free.
