In the ocean, it’s dog eat dog, or fish eat fish, or dolphin eat…you get it. Point is, in nature, everything and anything is up for grabs when it comes to food. We eat or we are eaten, it is as simple as that. Often, when a predator is lucky enough to snatch a meal, it gets enough to sustain itself for a short time. Sometimes the bounty is larger. Sometimes, though, a sea animal will bite off a little more than it can chew. In this post we will scope out a few instances when a marine animal eats, or tries to eat, something that usually isn’t on the menu.
Moray eel tries to swallow a shark, things don’t go quite according to plan
Have you ever seen something that looked oh so scrumptious but when you took a bite it wasn’t exactly what you were bargaining for? Those chocolate boxes come to mind. Well, this eel just had a Whitman’s Sampler moment when it tried, unsuccessfully, to eat a shark almost as big as it was. The violent video is proof positive of the stark realities of nature, and how difficult it really is for a wild animal to forge a living.
Bizarre moment dolphin mistakes cellphone for a fish and leaps up to take a bite
Whenever I eat too many tacos, my gastrointestinal system lets me know about it in a most unpleasant way. I get the feeling that eating a cellphone might elicit a similar response. Good thing this friendly flipper didn’t actually gorge on the guy’s phone. However, this incident may be a great lesson for us all: don’t dangle your silvery cellphone over a hungry dolphin. Just sayin’.
Pelican Trying To Eat A Big Fish
Not much else to say here. Just a pelican stuffing itself on a fish that’s way too large to fit in its gullet.
Turtle Tries To Eat a Cat
The horror! The humanity…or the catanity (whatever that is). The world has endured many tragic moments, many times of tribulation and strife. We have witnessed horrific terrorist attacks and unspeakable natural cataclysms and other manmade disasters. We have endured death and destruction from many different sources…but nobody has ever seen the terrible turtle and his kitten-eating habit. Actually, the turtle likes to nip at the furry feline’s toes in what could only be described as the most adorable carnivorous attack ever.
Beluga Whale Tries To Eat A Baby
More marine animal cuteness here! Just like the last video, we have a delightful critter who wants nothing more than to EAT YOU! Not really. The baby is behind a wall of glass, and even if it wasn’t it doesn’t appear as if the Beluga is actually trying to eat anything. In fact, it looks like the big guys wants to have a conversation with the little one. And that might actually be the case. It’s been found that belugas can mimic human speech patterns just like parrots. Pretty cool!
