Watching This Turtle Eat A Pigeon Is Both Fascinating And Terrifying

Since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV show began airing back in 1987, the world has mostly come to view turtles and tortoises as friends. However, this is far from the truth. While they can sometimes be harmless, they can also be extremely vicious and violent.

For proof of these claims, look no further than the video below. It shows a tortoise casually swimming up to a flock of pigeons, grabbing one, and drowning it in front of its friends.

This is totally brutal.

Living in a major U.S. city, I’m not the biggest fan of pigeons, but I do genuinely feel bad for this one. He never saw it coming.
