Tortoise and Rabbit Face Off in Nail-Biting Race at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Rhode Island

Slow and steady really did win the race at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island, when a rabbit and a tortoise were pitted against each other.

Footage of the race shows Pickles the tortoise and Split the rabbit in an enclosure, with a plate of strawberries enticing them behind a finish line. While Split hops about and explores, Pickles slowly crawls his way to victory.

“I can’t even believe this, this is a true-life tortoise and the hare happening!” an onlooker exclaims. “Slow and steady does in fact win the strawberries – and the race!” Credit: Mackenzie Maynard/Roger Williams Park Zoo via Storyful
