    Animals are known for exhibiting various forms of unusual courting behaviours during mating seasons and turtles are no exception.

    Two turtles have been filmed engaging in a fairly unusual interaction. In a video posted on Twitter, one of the turtles is seen gently fluttering its front legs around the other turtle's head as if slapping it. In fact, this is a common behaviour in these reptiles. In this way, the male is expecting to win over the female's heart. Good luck to this buddy, because if the female does not like its 'dance', it could spell trouble for her suitor.
