Tortoises are some of the most peaceful reptiles around – unless you interrupt them while they’re having a f***!

Explorer Paul Rose paid the price when he got too close to two of the randy shelled creatures on the Assumption Islands.

The result was an extremely slow (though long) chase, as the male of the pair got aggressive. The footage is unlikely to feature on COPS in the near future, but judging by the size of the giant tortoise, it probably could have caused a bit of damage if by some miracle it managed to catch up with Rose.

After while the animal leaves the intruder alone and goes back to his chosen one.

Watch the hilarious video below, – and meanwhile if you love watching crazy s*** go to, where there are thousands of great clips to choose from.
