A happy story about some majestic giant tortoise saved by quick thinking firefighters.
From the Croatian Times
It’s not turtley what they’re trained for, but firefirghters brought these giant reptiles back from the brink of death after a blaze by giving them oxygen.
The beasts had suffered severe smoke inhalation when the roof of their enclosure caught fire at Poestlingberg Zoo in Linz, Austria.
So firemen and zoo staff adapted oxygen masks designed for human blaze victims to help four of the huge 140 lbs African spurred tortoises to recover.
