This is not your child! Funny moment: A newborn goat snuggles up to a giant tortoise at a Texas petting zoo.

  • James and Kelly Peeler went to check on the goat at their mobile petting zoo.
  • The footage shows the giant tortoise “Uncle Ike” snuggling up to the friendly newborn.
  • The video was filmed at Jim’s Jungle Exotic Petting Zoo in Alvin, Texas.

It’s the comical moment when a newborn goat snuggles up against a giant tortoise in his new petting zoo home.

The goat was born at James and Kelly Peeler’s farm in Alvin, Texas on February 11th.

James was nervous to see the “brand new” baby getting settled in when he walked over to the paddock to check.

But instead of finding the baby clinging to its mother, James discovered that the goat had been taken under the wing of “Uncle Ike,” a giant tortoise that had lived on the farm for a long time.

James is heard commenting, “You love that baby, don’t you, Ike” as the bleating child hides under the turtle’s wrinkled neck.

And Ike seems to greet the little one as he rests his head on the tiny goat’s back.

After that, James said, “We were checking on new kids that had just been born, and Uncle Ike loved one of the new kids.”

The funny video was filmed at Jim’s Jungle Exotic Petting Zoo last Friday.

The hilarious footage captured the moment a baby goat snuggled up to “Uncle Ike,” a giant tortoise at his new petting zoo in Alvin, Texas.

The zoo was created six years ago by James and Kelly, who were inspired by a petting zoo they saw at their nephew’s birthday party.

The five-acre farm in Alvin now houses between 80 and 100 animals, most of which travel as part of the mobile zoo.

The zoo’s standard line-up includes mini ponies, goats, a lemur named Gizmo, wallabies, baby gooses, and Ike the giant tortoise.

“We hook up the trailer and they pretty much sit down on their own. Except for Ike, the turtle to carry,” Kelly said.

“Animals know when they are at home, they can relax, so affectionate customers do not come to the farm,” she added.
