This guy's like a tortoise paparazzo.

This clip from National Geographic's Pristine Seas is like one of Aesop's fables come to life. After expedition leader Paul Rose disturbs these two giant tortoises during their mating, he gets chased away by the extremely large, extremely slow male. Then it becomes a real-life version of the Tortoise and the Hare, where the tortoise is the tortoise, and Rose is like the hare. He's really rubbing it in the poor reptile's face, dancing away from him backwards and laughing at his plodding gait. Meanwhile, the tortoise was just trying to propagate his endangered species.
