Did That Tortoise Just Eat a Pigeon?

This tortoise in Brazil has learned that pigeons actually taste pretty good.

With the taste for squab meat, this predator of the deep has a great hunting ground.

Watch as this crafty tortoise creeps up and grabs this pigeon.

This public park in Porto Alegre, Brazil was the site of this wily hunt in broad daylight.

Apparently pigeons are always easy picking when they are feeding. Sneaking out of the murky depths, this reptile gets ready to strike.

Boom, and there it is. With a vice grip-like lock on the prey, this tortoise takes its prize to the deep. One happy tortoise, and one very unlucky pigeon.
