Man builds tiny Jurassic Park for his tortoise & it’s absolutely epic

This tortoise does not know how lucky it is.

Pet owner Oliver Turpin was not content for his leopard tortoise Louie to live in normal, dull surroundings. No, he deserved better than that. So he built a park.

A Jurassic Park.

Scroll down for some awesome pictures and a video of the Park in action. Allow YouTuber Freffo to set the scene:

Dr. Alan Grant: [seeing the dinosaurs for the first time] How fast are they?

John Hammond: Well, we clocked the Tortoise at 0,16 miles an hour.

Dr. Ellie Sattler: T-Tortoise? John Hammond: [nodding] Mm-hm.

Dr. Ellie Sattler: You said you've got a Tortoise?

John Hammond: [nodding] Uh-huh.

Dr. Alan Grant: Say again?

John Hammond: We have a Tortoise.

[Grant almost faints]
