Chimpanzee feeds apple to its ‘pet’ tortoise in heartwarming clip

A kind-hearted chimpanzee has taken the internet by storm after it was filmed gently feeding bits of apple to a hungry tortoise in a viral TikTok video.

In the clip, the chimp is seen sitting on a patch of grass as it offers the apple to a tortoise standing by its side which takes serval nibbles of the apple.

The patient chimp then takes a couple of bites before sharing the fruit with the tortoise again, with the apple going back-and-forth between the pair.

Footage was originally shared on the popular Chinese video-sharing social network TikTok by user @mokshabybee where it went viral with 38.2 million views and 2.4 million likes.

The IFS officer shared the video with the caption: “Love only grows by sharing.”

It quickly made an impression, with animal lovers commenting, “what great bonding”, “such an amazing video”, and “this brought happiness to my day”.
