Even though one might be running for the hills, these tortoises show no shame in front of Julian Kozel's camera. To check out the classic Tort-O-ise face for yourself, watch the video above.

To be sure, this hero-in-a-half-shell proves that slow and steady wins the race. We couldn't find anything on the sex life of the hare -- the tortoise's famed competitor. However, Mental Floss, points out that a rabbit's sexual encounter lasts just 20 to 40 seconds.
