Secret Life of Predators: Wet

A hawksbill sea turtle searches Sipidan reef looking for sponges to eat.  Sponges are toxic and full of glassy shards, but the turtle is built to digest them.
The oceans of our planet are ruthless battlefields that constantly test even the deadliest carnivores. Dive beneath the icy waves of Alaska's Aleutian Islands to witness a hunting technique rarely, if ever, documented amongst killer whales. Further south, the fastest fish in the ocean, the sailfish, corrals sardines into a giant bait ball in the Gulf of Mexico. Along the Pacific Coast, the Pacific torpedo ray stuns potential prey with a strong jolt of electricity.
