A giant tortoise has come to the rescue of his best mate at Taipei Zoo, after being flipped onto his back inside his enclosure.

The determined creature wanders over to investigate his upturned friend before flipping him over in one of the slowest rescue operations of all time, to the delight of onlookers.

Giant tortoises can weigh up to 300 kg and have been known to live for more than 250 years, although their average live expectancy is between 80 to 120 years.
