Tortoise and Cheetah Share Heartwarming Bond

Tortoise and Cheetah Share Heartwarming Bond

Check out this intriguing footage caught on camera. A tortoise and cheetah share a heartwarming bond. 

At the beginning of this clip, we see a young woman sharing the good news about a cheetah named Tuesday who lives in Florida, cuddling up to a large tortoise. The reporter shares that the cheetah literally has an “emotional support tortoise.” This adorable reptile is named Penzi. They live at the Carson Springs Wildlife Conservation Foundation in Gainesville, Florida.  

Witnessing this duo is unusual. I can honestly say that I have never seen anything quite like it before. This unique pair eats out of the same bowl and plays with toys together. Apparently cheetahs are very shy and have been known to have “support animals such as dogs, but this help found with Penzi the tortoise is special. 

Tuesday was raised by owners who had her around house cats. This reveals why she is so tamed. We then see photos of the wild cat and the large reptile together. At the end of the video, we witness Tuesday lying up against Penzi while purring as they take an afternoon nap. It is so adorable. 

Watching these two unlikely creatures become friends and supportive of one another reminds us that we as believers are called to be the body of Christ even if we have differences. The Spirit and the Word unite us and we are One in Jesus. 

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:4-6
