This heart-stopping footage shows the moment a ruthless tiger shark hunted down a turtle. Captured by 20-year-old Kaitlin Warnke, from Texas, the video shows the ten foot-long tiger shark carefully circling the turtle before biting it repeatedly.
The shark then grabs the turtle in its mouth before descending into the murky depths. The attack, which took place off the coast of Corpus Christi, Texas, lasted five minutes in total. Kaitlin said: ‘The shark would bite it then swim around it and continue this till the shark took the turtle in its mouth to take it under.
‘The entire time I was thinking about how amazing this was that I got to see nature in such a raw form. ‘I felt sad that the turtle had to die, but there was nothing we could do to save it.’ Kaitlin said she was shaken by what she witnessed.
She added: ‘My family and I ultimately had to accept the fact that the shark was going to get the turtle either way. ‘It was slightly distressing because we saw an animal in distress but couldn’t help him.’
