Richard Clayderman serenades tortoises in attempt to get them to mate

Clayderman Tortoises

Apparently, it can be difficult to get tortoises to do the humpday hump in captivity. Or it is at this zoo, anyway.

Enter pianist Richard Clayderman. The hope, apparently, is that the soothing, romantic tones of Clayderman’s keyboard will move these 150-year-old dudes and dudettes to produce an heir. Will it work??? I guess we’ll see.

I wonder if the Empress Elizabeth of Russia tried this with Peter and Catherine.
