This Athletic Turtle Wants to Become a Basketball Player

Turtles are usually perceived as calm and sometimes lazy animals who enjoy spending their time laying around and eating. But, as it turns out, this isn’t the case with all of these magnificent sea creatures as they can be pretty athletic.

One internet user recently shared a video that shows his pet turtle Hurricane playing basketball. The turtle can be seen dribbling the ball on the concrete and being really good at it.

Hurricane manages to keep the ball in bounds with some crafty handles and can be even seen pounding it against the wall. The turtle is also impressively fast, as he manages to catch up with the ball surprisingly quickly each time it goes away from him.
