140 year old mother tortoise wearing her 5 day old son as a hat


A viral image claims to show a 140-year-old tortoise wearing her 5-day-old son as a hat. Is this true or false?

The image is real: It dates from September 2011 when the Nyiregyhaza Animal Park (also known as the Sosto Zoo) in Hungary was showing off the eight baby African spurred tortoises that had recently been born there. The photographer put one of the babies on the head of its mother, and snapped a few photos, and these made their way into a variety of media sources.
