Tortoise Couple Can’t Stand Each Others’ Faces After 115 Years Together

Tortoise Couple
MSNBC

Tortoises Bibi and Pidi from the Happ Reptile Zoo in Austria have been together for the past 115 years — that’s way more than even the best of us can brag about — but it looks like the couple has finally hit a rough patch.

Apparently, Bibi has gotten so fed up with Pidi recently that she just attacks him for no obvious reason, which leads us to believe she simply just cannot stand the sight of his face anymore. It’s kind of understandable. We don’t know what it’s like to be cooped up with someone for that long, but poor Pidi has been taking all the blame. It’s been reported that Bibi’s attacks have been so severe that she’s chewed off part of Pidi’s shell.

But wait, it gets more ridiculous. Zoo officials are calling in “experts” to counsel the pair. Zoo Chief Helga Happ said, “We have staff talking to and” — read carefully — “trying to engage the two in interacting, and we hope that they might find their harmony again.” We wonder how this so-called staff is able to “talk” to tortoises. Isn’t that the real phenomena?
