This is what a savage, bloodthirsty tortoise fight looks like

FIIIIIIIGHT! (Picture: Safari Live)

Slow and steady, tortoises have a reputation for being good athletes.

But did you ever wonder how they would fare as wrestlers?

Now, you can witness it as two of them have been filmed going at it in an absolutely fearsome show of aggression.

(Well, kind of.)

You can see the bloodlust is there, but the logistics make things a little difficult as they headbutt and chase one another at 2mph.

Watching it, you’re almost willing one of them to manage to flip the other on their back, but things end unconclusively, with a two-tortoise conga line instead.

The footage was taken a Djuma Private Game Reserve in South Africa.

Males are known to be territorial over their land, and will fight dirty to protect what is theirs.

They are also know to cause stress to females.
