"It was actually mimicking his dribbling moves ... They need to find it a tiny ball it can play with and see what it does," wrote another user. "That’s a pretty brave squirrel. You’d think he’d be afraid of the ball. Might just be young and still hasn’t learned he can’t play hoops," commented the third user.

Watch the masterpiece here:

In the fabled story of the Tortoise and the Hare, the moral and often-repeated adage was that slow and steady wins the race. In the story, the tortoise was showcased as the 'slowest' creature that won the race against the most active animal, the rabbit. Though the story conveyed a life lesson, it also portrays the tortoise as the 'slowest creature'. However, a recent video posted on a social media platform has blown the mind of netizens. In the 10-second video shared by the Instagram user, a group of tortoises can be seen roaming on a yard at high speed. Some netizens even commented that the poor animals were drugged. However, the video uploader revealed that the video was not an 'original piece' rather it was an 'artistic piece'.
