Also shows some impressive intelligence and problem solving skills on the part of the helper tortoise - to figure out the right angle from which to push in order to right-side-up his friend!

Can I be the cynic here? I think, after watching the video (which is really awesome if you take it at face value), that the upright tortoise may be trying to *mate* with the upside down tortoise.

Not "Oh, let me help you, buddy".

Sorry.
