In video: Tiny 50p-sized tortoise unveiled by safari park

The three-week-old baby pancake tortoise has been named Finn.

A tiny tortoise not much bigger than a 50p piece has hatched at West Midland Safari Park – and proved an instant hit on social media.

The park near Bewdley, Worcestershire, said keepers are in awe of the three-week-old baby pancake tortoise, which has been named Finn.

A video of the tortoise posted on the park’s Facebook page – showing the reptile munching on a leaf – racked up 192,000 views in less than a week.
