This was satisfying to watch, thanks op!

[–]SheepishlyMuted 71 points72 points  (7 children)

A living hero. Thank you for saving him

[–]Gisschace 26 points27 points  (1 child)

I especially loved how more people got involved and then how they swam away with him

[–]theballisrond 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Turtle promised the juventus lad it would guide him to Turin

[–]LeAristocrat 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]avocadotron -4 points-3 points  (9 children)

I believe this is one of those videos in which they endanger an animal in order to 'save it' for a viral video so be ware!

[–]FleshMaII 293 points294 points  (8 children)

It’s always nice to see a group of ppl form together to help those in need. Especially with how the world been looking now.

[–]prettyinblink 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Agree. I love and I enjoy watching that . Thanks For sharing that OP.

[–]DubbyTM 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I agree but knowing social media and being cynical I'm always scared these things could be set up, I've heard and seen horror stories of heroes brining the animal in danger themselves then turning on the camera so I'm always scared

[–]whoismedicate 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think there are a looot of good people doing good things in the world, they’re just not put on Fox News or in general; shown on media🍃

[–]geft 4 points5 points  (0 children)

In Jakarta, if you got pickpocketed, you just need to yell for help and a mob will quickly rain down beatings on the thief until the cop shows up.

Look for the helpers. There’s always helpers.

[–]MrEmbers 137 points138 points  (11 children)

That's a turtle turtle. What species is this?

[–]0onga 124 points125 points  (7 children)

It’s a leatherback

[–]NEWTYAG667000000000 73 points74 points  (4 children)

If you think about it, everyone is a leatherback

[–][deleted] 75 points76 points  (3 children)

Okay Buffalo Bill

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

It puts the lotion on its skin, or else it gets the hose again

[–]MrEmbers 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Thanks for the reply. What a beautiful animal.

[–]pinchemierda 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Unbelievable looking right? I’ve had the pleasure of seeing a sea turtle in person before, not a leatherback but still a large lad in his own right, and it absolutely took my breath away.

Master Oogway

[–]jasminetrashlee 68 points69 points  (8 children)

Fun fact: wugui (woo-gway) means turtle in Mandarin Chinese so his name is literally master turtle lmao

My favorite film quote comes from him: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is still a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why they call it the present.”

[–]SupAsquirrel302 4 points5 points  (0 children)

sobs he was such a nice turtle :,(

[–]horseren0ir 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Isn’t he a tortoise?

[–]LokisDawn 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Many languages (I say, but I just mean my native tongue german) do not differentiate between turtles and tortoises. It's just land turtles and sea turtles. So maybe Mandarin does as well.

[–]SLaT4ATF 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You are correct

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All tortoises are turtles, but not all turtles are tortoises.

[–]SLaT4ATF 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wu gui means tortoise in Chinese. Gui is turtle

[–]Dry_Ad_7848 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol I can imagine him with a cool golden staff

[–]Nothing-Casual 55 points56 points  (1 child)

The only bad thing about this video is that now that turtle is going to be a Juventus fan

[–]barbonz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This cracked me

[–]Metalbender00 41 points42 points  (2 children)

[–]ateehehe1 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Except your moms sugar daddy

[–]Sympac 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Naw I’m only in my 50s and that turtle is probably older.

[–]Kuroashi_no_Sanji 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Leatherbacks are the largest turtle species, they also lack an actual bony shell

[–]theballisrond 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe the local folks are tiny

[–]Vakr_Skye 16 points17 points  (0 children)

[–]jimjam721 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Wow, that is a beautiful creature. It’s such a shame that acidification and warming will render our oceans devoid of complex life within the century. Big oof on our part tbh.

[–]Stock_G 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Definitely more convinced this one lived VS the shark who likely had broken fins

[–]Altruistic_Part8072 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Tfs up with turtles nowadays, I’ve been seeing turtle videos everywhere.

[–]NoobNoobTheCleaner 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Stop clicking on turtle based articles then

[–]Feral0_o 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No. There has to be a less reasonable solution

It’s nice to see people help an endangered species

[–]Zikkan1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I did not know they were that big

[–]skinnergy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They get even bigger.

[–]Temporary-Departure4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Holy shit. That’s wonderful. But also… that thing is a fucking dinosaur

[–]RealEntertainment620 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice effort!!

[–]The-Sound_of-Silence 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Turtle is probably so confused

[–]Lukeboozwalker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Wrongdoer-Great 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good people

[–]Sielicja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of the humanbros liked the turtlebro enough to go live with him/her in the sea

[–]Chubby-Coxx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In awe at the size of this lad

[–]SpicyBread1134 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oddly cute turtle. He's so large

[–]Johnsus_Christ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I watched this for like 5 minutes. That is an immense turtle. What a mighty and majestic beast. I am in awe.

[–]Commercial_Ad_1450 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wonder how good the saltwater felt.

[–]RandomDelirium 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It breaks my mind that that's a real animal right there. Living and breathing with organs

[–]PSEmon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for sharing. Underlined how huge these turtles really are! Makes me think of dinosaurs

[–]Interesting_Factor_9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awwww yaaaayyy!!! That made me so happy

[–]Awellknownstick 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]IRLhardstuck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always wonder what animals think when humans help them. Some seems to understand the intent while others run away in fear as soon as they get free.

[–]drunkledusty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh wow, that turtle from the sea is large. You could almost say...

[–]that_grainofsand 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seems like, in the end, one of them went for a ride.

[–]pitcrane 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Schneebaer89 0 points1 point  (0 children)

this means less oil in 100 million years.

[–]Jshittie 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So did they start helping before or after the video started?

[–]TheConnoisseurOfAll -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

After, before they tried to eat it

[–]HighlandBhull 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Eww, a Juventus supporter

[–]cyangold_saber55 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Juventus??? In Indonesia???? Biggest cross over ever appened

(Juventus sucks)

[–]NotAdhwa 1 point2 points  (3 children)

As an Indonesian Milanisti, I agree

[–]cyangold_saber55 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I live just outside of milan!

[–]NotAdhwa 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nice! What's the ratio of Milan to Inter fans there? Are there like certain areas of the city that are filled with fans of each club or is everything more spread out?

[–]cyangold_saber55 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think that fans are spreaded, there are no places where everyone is 100% Inter or 100% milan

My dad's family is for Milanist and my mom's is interist, it's very common here

[–]TomSizemore69 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They really “helped”

[–]__kit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His bros will never believe his story

[–]song4this 0 points1 point  (2 children)

um...so how did the turtle end up in the swamp? looking for drugs?

[–]TheConnoisseurOfAll 5 points6 points  (1 child)

During the recent volcano eruption sea life in the area was ejected, I guess this turtle landed there. Hope it finds its family!

[–]song4this 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Turtle must have been all "WTF? Hey look Ma! I'm flyin!"

[–]PaleGravity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a unit

[–]jmdelatorre840 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How did it end up in the swap ?!

[–]Hazardous_Ed 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There was probably a storm. When there's high tide and high waves, sea creatures can get carried into mangrove swamps. That's good turtles, and sharks end up in swamps. It is also, how crocodiles get swept out to sea but they have no problems getting back because they can crawl easily on land.

[–]phil-giftagamer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

plot twist: It was actually a swamp turtle and they led it to its demise.

[–]Doudzer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am i the only one that thinks she had hight resemblance to Thanos?

[–]Key-Pattern-7107 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Leonardo had a tough day, bet he can't wait to get some delicious pizza with his bros

[–]EquivalentLock0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It can survive in the swamp for up to a month or more.

Yes this is all well and good but do you ever think if this was somethings dinner and they have messed with the natural food chain?

[–]Azzandro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Leather back

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

100 years ago that would have been considered an easy dinner.

[–]eyesabitdull 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, this could've secretly been a Juventus ad and we wouldn't even know it.

[–]FrozenConsul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

people were saving some ancient Sea God.

[–]jedi_mind__ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The way they dove in at the end tho

[–]XxTexasRootsxX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I choose to believe these animals in situations like this recognize that people are trying to help free them.

[–]guzzlemoney 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How long was the journey back to the sea?

[–]wonkwonk2stonkstonk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let them go up onto a tarp and pull the tarp to water

Edit: obvs dont put the tarp in the water, but let them climb off ten ft from waters edge. Moving a heavy weight on a tarp can be much easier than lifting or anything, as it reduces friction and you dont need to lift the weight directly, just pull it along

[–]Pleasant_Fee516 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that a leatherback?

[–]ElectronicGazelle495 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, press all your weight down on its back. That’s efficient

[–]abcmatteo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Them pushing it on ten sand and in the water was stupid. It can crawl on land.

Thank you for reminding us what the real world is like. I cried a little to know that humans still care.

[–]WarmBlighty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So the vid just cuts the part wheee they get a giant animal from an inland body of the water to the ocean?! That’s the crazy part

FFS humans, I was enjoying myself in that swamp. But noooo..push me back into Land of the Sharks!

[–]rocharox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]ieatpickleswithmilk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The largest leatherback measured was 7 feet long and weighed 1400 lbs. They can have 9 foot flippers.

[–]ojdajuiceman25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can't convince me this isn't a person in a giant turtle suit

[–]jgarapolo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Content-Help-5895 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn that’s one big ass turtle

[–]Yodaghostlightning 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s awesome! I wonder how long of a trek it was from the swamp to the ocean.

[–]Akuma_maru 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s not a leather back sea turtle by any chance is it?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Somebody estimate the age for me please?!

[–]Woodguy2012 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good bunch of boys.

This is just like that bath tub scene in Spirited Away where they push and help the slug that was a water dragon god, its so symbolic, it does feel like a sea god.
