London Zoo brings in legendary pianist to get Galapagos tortoises in the mood

Yes, we’re all sick of loved up couples plastered everywhere in the run up to the 14th, but one pair I spotted in today’s Metro managed to stand out, mostly because they’re Galapagos tortoises, and adorable.

In a bid to encourage Dirk and Polly to mate, London Zoo has made the brilliant move of bringing legendary French pianist Richard Clayderman in to serenade them.

Although the couple remained decidedly unmoved by the Prince of Romance’s melodies, the story got some nice coverage in a few nationals, including The Telegraph, The Huffington Post and ITV News
