Killer Whale Stuns Tourists With Galapagos Turtle Attack

An orca whale catapulted a turtle out of the ocean before having it for dinner in an incredible attack witnessed and filmed by cruise line passengers.

It shows a vessel pulling up alongside the large whale, before it suddenly dives beneath the surface and launches an unsuspecting turtle into the sky.

Orcas are opportunistic predators and feed on species including sea lions, dolphins, fish and in this case, green sea turtles.
