The unnamed pet turtle was filmed using the apex of two walls to climb for, what we’re going to hopefully infer, was his own lasting emancipation.

The audacious amphibian is seen about six foot from the ground making steady upward progress using the pebble dash render like a turtle-sized climbing wall.

For those caring souls among you, concerned about the turtle’s welfare, the video’s description says, “the turtle is okay. It didn’t fell [sic] on the ground,” which, oddly, would be more reassuring if it was less grammatically problematic.
