Feeding frenzy

Turtles can move fast when they want to.
Do NOT get between a large turtle and its food!
'Turtles' and 'frenzy' aren't two words that you would normally read in the same sentence. However, it turns out that sea turtles can move pretty fast when there is a free food buffet.

At the Xcaret eco-park close to Playa del Carmen last fall, the water at the sea turtle enclosure turned into a churning mass of flippers, shells and snapping mouths when staff tossed in shovelfuls of food at feeding time.
