This baby turtle getting a free lift on his mommy’s head is only 4 days old, 2.17 inches long, and weighs less than an ounce — only 0.88 oz!
He’s an African spurred tortoise, Geochelone sulcata, one of 8 babies born to the same mommy turtle at the Nyiregyhaza Animal Park in Hungary.

The 8 babies had hatched after 115 days.
