World’s Largest Tortoise Fake Photo: Hoax Circulates Online

The fake photo of the World’s Largest Tortoise is again circulating online. The world’s largest tortoise was reportedly found in the Amazon River. The pictured showed the giant 800-pound reptile being transported along a roadway strapped to the bed of a large truck.

According to hoax slayer websites, the “tortoise” is not real. The picture is a scene from the 2006 Japanese movie “Gamera the Brave” which features a giant turtle creature. At one point in the movie, the wounded Gamera is transported via a military truck to a research facility. The circulating image is apparently taken from this part of the movie.

Here is the fake photo:
