Man-eating tortoise clamped onto drunk’s lip after he attempted to eat it alive
“I thought he wanted to buy it and cook it at home, but he said he wanted to eat it now,” says Zhang Lun, a stallholder at a market in China’s capital Beijing.
Bao Yu had been browsing Lun’s wares when he picked up a live tortoise and tried to eat it.
“He hadn’t even paid for it but he shoved it towards his mouth and I thought he was going to bite its head off. But before he could put it in his mouth the tortoise bit him on the lip. I told him to stick his head in the tank and then we managed to get the tortoise off.”
So. Now we know how stop a tortoise biting you (or trying to eat you alive – ed).
Phew! Do you know how hard it is find a tortoise’s anus in an emergency?
