The undiscerning palate, wide jaws and powerful teeth of a tiger shark make it a constant threat to sea turtles. However, the large head and strong, muscular jaws of the loggerhead sea turtle help it fend off fierce predators. In this video segment from Nature, a loggerhead sea turtle refuses to fall prey to the tiger shark and attacks its voracious enemy.
This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
