In Aesop's fable of the tortoise and the hare, the hare starts off the race in rapid fashion but then decides to take a nap, assuming he would wake up in time to defeat the tortoise. The hare, of course, naps a little too long, and the tortoise, through a slow and steady trot, wins the race.

Turns out Aesop knew what he was talking about.

A pet fair in Thailand decided to settle the issue once and for all by staging a competition between an actual tortoise and a hare ... or, in this case, a fluffy bunny.

The bunny gets off to a solid start but appears to get distracted and just stops a few short hops away from the finish line. Meanwhile, the tortoise ambles along, straight ahead, toward the finish line. The rabbit's owner attempts to get the rabbit's attention for a last-minute victory, but to no avail. The tortoise wins the race as the bunny just looks around, no doubt wondering why rabbits never seem to beat the slow-moving tortoise.

Tortoise and hare prove Aesop right (again)
