This poor turtle thought he was the first one to the minnow, but gets his head inhaled by a largemouth bass instead.
Turtles are fairly long-lived creatures in our world and while they move slowly they have been around for millions of years.
Fish like the largemouth bass on the other hand are fast, aggressive predators that likely will try to eat anything that moves.
When you put the two together, one of them has to lose.
No turtles were hurt in this video, unless you count their pride.
Did I say that turtles were slow? Well this one just proved me wrong! That turtle had his head back in the shell before you could say “holy crap!”
Bass can be a tough target for fishermen at times and at times they’ll hit a set of shiny car keys if you throw them. We’ve seen enough hand-fed bass to think that this was likely a private pond or maybe even an aquarium setting and these two water dwellers are neighbors.
That bass reminds me of that one guy who always takes the last piece of pizza in the box.
