This Tortoise Gets To Live In His Very Own 'Jurassic Park'


One lucky tortoise gets to live it up in the world of Jurassic Park.

That's because the tortoise's owner decided to recreate the theme park from the movie for his favorite pet, right down to the smallest details.

That owner, Oliver Turpin, built the enclosure for the tortoise, Louie, and then posted a video on YouTube, complete with John Williams' film musical score over it.

The video shows the gates to the park, along with the broken fence seen in the film. There's even a miniature visitor center, although it's doubtful that the tortoise gets a lot of tourists wandering through.

Of course, Louie could really care less about his Jurassic Park digs and is only concerned about munching on his favorite grass. It's obvious that Turpin is very proud of the work he's done here to create a grazing area for his beloved pet, along with a pool for the reptile to drink and swim in.

In spite of Louie's lack of enthusiasm, viewers of the video have commented about how cool the tortoise enclosure is, as well as provided quotes from the Jurassic Park movie. There is one thing, though, that could become a problem: the fence seems flimsy: if that tortoise escapes, things could get dangerous (OK, probably not with an animal as laid back as this one). However, it's certain that this won't hold any raptors for very long.

It is appropriate that a tortoise would receive the Jurassic Park treatment, though: tortoises, along with many other reptiles, were around during the time of dinosaurs.

Jurassic Park, based on the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton, released in 1993. Since then, there have been three sequels, including the most recent, Jurassic World, which starred Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. A sequel to that film is also in the works with a potential release in 2018.

The official Jurassic World twitter account recently teased a new website coming soon for Jurassic World 2.

Juan Antonio Bayona will direct the new movie, which will introduce the concept of using dinosaurs as military weapons: if we know anything from the first four movies, this will not go well.
