An Indian was arrested after he posted this photo of himself on Facebook. The young man got inside an enclosed area of the Hyderabad zoo and posed standing on top of a Galapagos tortoise that’s over 120 years old. Fazal Shaik, aged 24 years, was arrested after the image was shared on social networks. He told police that he did it to “get more likes.” His stunt could get him months in prison or a substantial fine.
Galapagos turtles are among the largest species on the planet. They can live more than 100 years out in the wilderness and are protected by law.
