You know what they say, little guy: If you want to be cool, you'll need to come out of your shell.

And that's exactly what this tortoise did Sunday in Southampton, England, where rising temperatures led this quick-thinking fellow to pop out and head for the nearest garden hose.

Unlike our furry friends, we're lucky we're not forced to sport a layer of fur or carry a hard shell with us during this heat wave. But then again, we'd much rather be facing a sprinkler head-on than a looming deadline.

Keep fighting the good fight, buddy!
