    Humans could never know what kinds of games go on in the mighty animal kingdom. Who knows what goes on in the heads of these beautiful animals, that makes them behave in a 'perfectly natural' way that may look dangerous or bizarre to us.

    Susanta Nanda, an officer in the Indian Forest Services on Saturday shared a bone-chilling video of a turtle, who kept swimming close to a lion’s mouth, as the king of the jungle slurped in water from a pond.

    At one point in the video, the turtle swims so close to the lion that it almost gives the Indian “Mufasa” a tiny peck on its mouth. Luckily for the tiny turtle, the lion (which had a blood-stained chin) was in a calm mood after finishing off a satisfying meal.

    Captioning the video, Nanda wrote, “Someone needs to counsel the tortoise for suicidal tendencies,” and we could not agree more.

    Take a look.

      Night at the Opera: Adorable Golden Retriever Enjoys 'Singalong' With Luciano Pavarotti

      Dogs are smart and strong, and sometimes can be extremely talented, showing off unusual skills and abilities. Of course, given their paws, it's unlikely any of them will prove to be a dab hand at the guitar or the piccolo. But their extremely sensitive ears means they have a good sense of rhythm helping them to sing along with human stars.
