A turtle's shell is essential to their protection. A damaged shell makes the creature vulnerable, and can even sometimes be fatal.
Luckily, there are heroes that care about the wellbeing of our scaly friends, like this Reddit user's father.
On Monday, Daniel Hollenback — who goes by the username Sublimebro — uploaded photos to Reddit of a turtle whose injuries were healed thanks to his father's efforts. The tiny turtle came back a year later looking better than ever.
Adorably, the Reddit user's father — presumably the above mentioned Ken — marked a "Ken's Body Shop" on the putty patch.
Although Ken's writing didn't survive, the turtle thankfully did, and people made car repair jokes about it.
Most importantly, Hollenback's father handled the situation just like an animal lover should.
This dad apparently has a history of performing heroic animal deeds. Hollenback uploaded a video of his father playing with a raccoon that they rescued from their attic with the intention to relocate.
Faith in humanity and animals has been restored.
